Description of work undertaken during porting:

The aim of this work is to provide a means for portlets to communicate and share information, by using standard JSR-168 components.

Problems encountered:

Sakai VRE reports available from http://acet.rdg.ac.uk/projects/vre/docs.php. System documentation and details are available from http://acet.rdg.ac.uk/projects/vre/ipcportlet.php.

Ongoing support issues:

Tool use case:

Currently the JSR-168 specification does not define a way for portlets or portlet applications to communicate with each other. This library provides an Asynchronous Registry Session Centre (ARSC), through which different portlet applications can communicate information and objects.

Help information for tool users:

Technical reports, presentations, installation guides and manuals are available from
