Hi,
I have created a new theme for my application in websphere portal server.
Now, I want to comsume a webservice to display some parameter on the screen.
Any idea, how to go for it?


Thanks & Regards,

Can you please make your question clear ? What do you mean by consume web-services in themes ? Do you want set any parameters in themes with the results of a web-service ?

Thanks

Create a Servlet that wraps the web service and hides all of the nasty details. Then have the result of the Servlet wrapped up on a custom tag. Then, place the custom tag in the theme.

The code becomes easy to manage in the Servlet, complexity is hidden from the custom tag, and the only thing that appears in the theme is the tag itself.

That's a direction. Doesn't need to be a Servlet. Could be just a POJO. But you don't want to pollute a theme any more than a theme is probably already poluted.

Good luck.
