Hi,
Not sure whether this is the right forum for this question.

I am currently trying to design an appropriate architecture to incorporate 2 portals. One was written in php the other in java. The java portlets are all JSR168 but the php is propriety code written in house.
Essentially what I want to be able to do is to allow the php developer to continue using php and the java developer to continue writing in java.

If possible the java developer would like to retrieve the information that the php is retrieving from the database and vice versa and then display that information as a portlet in some common framework

One way I see this being done is using xml and web services. Would web services allow this happen ie. allow data interchange between the php and java etc...

The presentation layer is the only place where I can see the information being displayed, ideally this would be in a portlet using a portal framework such as Liferay.

Does this make sense? Thoughts greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
