When you post data to the Web Content Viewer portlet as described under Sending data to the Web Content Viewer portlet
, the addressed data sink serves the result back in the form of a data source. The Web Content Viewer portlet performs the following operations on that data source:
- The portlet transforms that data source into a String value by converting the source into a character source.
- The portlet sets the resulting String value as a corresponding session attribute or private render parameter.
The URL generated for the action parameter of the HTTP form controls whether the resulting string is stored in a session attribute or set as a private render parameter. You can specify the behavior by setting the corresponding resultSessionAttribute
parameters in the action URL plug-in tag that you use to generate the form action URL.
