Content Aggregation: WSRP, RSS, P2P, REST etc.

A number of documents are available describing uses of aggregation protocols applicable to portal environments. These have been used in the evaluation exercise. In particular one describing the use of WSRP in Web service registries such as UDDI is of interest because it indicates how remote portlets can be published and discovered in a similar way to other services. This was discussed in a Grid context at a recent OASIS workshop (Universit of Oxford, 20-21 September 2004). Proposed specifications are due for public review in October, see [68].
