I am new to portlet development.I am having two portlets(jsr168) PortletA and PortletB in a portal application. I am using weblogic workshop.
PortletA have a page which takes customerid. When user enters the customerid and click the submit button then PortletB should display details of that customer. That mean
PortletA should call processAction of PortletB . Please tell me how to do this. Thanks in advance.

Two or more portlets can be 'wired' using a portlet service called 'Wires'.

They would be called as Cooperative Portlets.

Please refer to the IBM Infocenter for more details.
