JSF Portlets

I m new in portal/portlet development.

I m using RAD 6.0 websphere portal server 5.1 and created a sample portlet application having two portlets. in first portlet i m taking info from user and want to show on sencond portlet on the same page with the help of wires.

Override processAction() for second (receiving portlet) but it is not executed by first portlet.

How it will be called by first portlet ?

What is the role of propertybroker and wsdl files and how properties registered by property broker ?

If anybody knows the flow of registering and calling the portlet actions, kindly let me know .

Thanks & regards

The details of wsdl and portlet wiring are only known by mystics and heretics.

Why two portlets? Is it possible for a user to remove the second portlet? If the end user removes the second portlet, does that affect the functionality of the first? Are you going to FORCE users to have both portlets on the same page? Will this be done administratively?

Are both portlets packaged in the same war? You could use SESSION_SCOPE if you were using JSR-168 portlets. If they are not in the same war file, why not?

Let's think this thing out. It might be a better candidate for a JSF or Struts portlet.
