Through a few real use cases, this paper describes the IPC mechanism in live action. The paper describes in details how to create page flow by chaining pages together using portlet communication.
Previously, I have proposed a new framework for Inter-Portlet Communication (IPC) to remedy the shortfall of the Java Portlet Specifcation. In this paper, I will describe the technical details on how to define IPC in portlet configuration.
IPC is the communication mechanism between different portlets on a portal platform. This paper describes the concept and framework of a proposed IPC mechanism, and the different use cases for portlet communications.
