Well, really, you can't do that. There's no way to generate a URL for just one portlet, without invoking the whole portal infrastructure.

What are you trying to do and why? I'm wondering if there's another way to deal with the problem you're looking at.

Hi currently i also have same issue, i need to render only part of one of portlet, not fully page - aggregated portlet .
I'm using IBM Websphere 6.0.x, and found PortletServingServlet looks like will fullfil my needs, but i have google there is nothing real example how to use this feature.
If maybe someone can give any idea/example about this feature? it will means alot for me.

Thanks,
Wiyanto
