Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) extends today’s data-centric web service paradigm by providing markup fragments that can be used directly for rendering. WSRP alleviates some complex tasks of building web portals by enabling remotely-hosted portlets to be accessed directly. This illustrates a promising approach for portal federation. However, according to our early investigations on selected open-source portal frameworks, WSRP implementations are still immature. In this paper, a deep look at WSRP, in particular, WSRP4J the Apache implementation of the OASIS WSRP 1.0 specification will be reported with further discussions aiming at providing a full solution for WSRP.
