Well, with JSR168, we don't really have inter-portlet communication. If portlets are in a common war file, you can share information through the application scope of the PortletSession, but that's about it.

Remember, portlets are intended to be isolated little content spots. They're not really supposed to depend upon each other for communication. For what you're doing, you might just want to have one portlet instead.
