Hi,

Portlet noob here. What I'm trying to do is make my static portlets update parts of itself using AJAX. I've successfully done this when the updating parts do not use portlet tags.

Given the following:

dynamic.jsp
- a jsp fragment that contains urls generated with <portlet:renderURL>

portlet.jsp
- a portlet view that simply jsp:includes dynamic.jsp - this works fine

portlet-refresh.jsp
- a portlet view that contains basic AJAX XmlHttpRequest code that refreshes a portion of itself with dynamic.jsp.

My question is how do I enable dynamic.jsp to access the "portlet" tag when it is called by ajax(portlet-refresh.jsp)? I suppose the problem is that dynamic.jsp doesn't have automatic access to Portlet specific objects/session when it is accessed this way.

Thanks
