Portlet to Portlet Help

Hi guys, I have a very basic question.

I am using Weblogic 9.2 portal.
I have two Portlets A and B.
If I want to call Portlet B's processAction from Portlet A's processAction, how would I do it?

Thanks in advance.


I am so frustrated...

Larry,
Since your question is too server-specific, I think folks at JavaRanch's WebLogic Forum might be able to help you more than people out here in general portals and portlets forum.

If you have general portal-related questions, you are welcome too!

I'm a WebSphere dude, so I only know the jetspeed API and JSR-168. I don't know about BEA, so there may be some BEA tricks I don't know about.

However, from a portal perspective, I think you're going down the wrong path when you are thinking about one portlet calling another portlets Process Action method.

Is there data that needs to be shared? Could you use a shared PortletSession? Pehaps even have the two portlets read from a central database? That's fairly efficient.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Maybe I can help steer you in the right direction.

Cheers!
