Building Asynchronous Applications
Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) is a standard for content aggregators, such as Web portals, to access and display
content sources (i.e. portlets) that are hosted on a remote server. WSRP is a technology agnostic protocol designed for accessing remote
Portlets in a standard manner.
The WSRP specification defines a web-service interface for interacting with interactive presentation-oriented web services.
Initial work was produced through the joint efforts of the Web Services for Interactive Applications (WSIA) and Web Services for Remote Portlets
(WSRP) OASIS Technical Committees. With the approval of WSRP v1 as an OASIS standard in September, 2003, these two Technical Committees merged and continued the work as the Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) OASIS Technical Committee.
