Use the Rich Client WSRP Viewer Enablement Portlet to configure a WSRP portlet for the Lotus® Expeditor platform.
The Rich Client WSRP Viewer Enablement Portlet is a proxy portlet for a WSRP portlet that stores the WSRP metadata (the WSRP portlet handle and producer information). After the Rich Client WSRP Viewer Enablement Portlet is configured and deployed in a composite application, the composite application can present a portlet viewer in the Lotus Expeditor platform that shows the content of the remote WSRP portlet.
WSRP is an OASIS standard that defines interactive, presentation-oriented Web services between WSRP-enabled applications, such as the Portal server or the WSRP runtime within the Lotus Expeditor. The WSRP runtime retrieves portlet content from remote portlets and processes user interaction.
This topic assumes that you are already familiar with the WSRP specification. For more details about the OASIS WSRP specification, refer to the OASIS WSRP Standard Web site: http://oasis-open.org/committees/wsrp
If you want to deploy a portlet viewer for WSRP runtime in the Portal-administered client environment, you need to configure and deploy a Rich Client WSRP Viewer Enablement Portlet. Use the Rich Client WSRP Viewer Enablement Portlet to search remote portlets that provide WSRP services and share their WSRP-related metadata in a Rich Client view. Additional data needed by the portlet viewer for WSRP runtime is configured using the Rich Client Layout Administration Portlet, which is described in Using the Rich Client Layout Administration Portlet
. Once you deploy a Rich Client WSRP Viewer Enablement Portlet in a composite application and configure it for a remote portlet, the Portal-administered client will present the portlet viewer for WSRP runtime showing the contents of the remote portlet.
Deploy only WSRP-compliant portlets with the Lotus Expeditor. Even though you can specify a portlet in the Portal server's WSRP interface or command line, the portlet is not considered WSRP-compliant. Refer to the WSRP Standard Web site for information about WSRP-compliancy. Before deploying the WSRP functionality in the Lotus Expeditor, it's best to try to consume the WSRP service provider in the management server.
