Plumtree released new software to support Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) from OASIS and the proposed final draft of the Java Specification Request 168 (JSR 168) portlet standard. For both standards implementations, Plumtree’s support extends to versions 4.5, 4.5WS and 5.0 of the Plumtree Corporate Portal. Currently in proposed final draft, JSR 168 is developed though the Java Community Process with contributions and support from an 18-member Expert Group (EG). It is a portlet standard for portal computing designed to establish a common interface for portlets. Final release of the standard is expected later this month. Plumtree plans to update its container with any changes made in the final release of the JSR 168 standard. In any implementation of JSR 168, the portal communicates with a container, which contains the actual JSR 168 portlet. The Plumtree Container was designed to run on many application servers and Web servers including Apache Tomcat, BEA WebLogic and IBM WebSphere. www.plumtree.com
