Leasing for Remote Portlets
By nitkal on Jun 17, 2008
WSRP 2.0 offers Leasing of Portlets as part of the specification. Leasing is the process by which a Consumer registers with a Producer for a specified time period, after which the Consumer Registration is rendered invalid. Lifetime is an optional parameter in the Registration offered by V2 producers. The OpenPortal WSRP project (Sun's open source implementation of WSRP ) has implemented this feature using the Open Source Portlet Container 2.0 . Check this wiki page for more information on portlet leasing.

2. Create a V2 producer (supporting Inband Registration) using the Producer Admin Portlet. Publish a few portlets and enable the Producer.
3. Create a V2 consumer. Check the Lifetime Supplied checkbox. Specify the Valid No of Days, Hours and Minutes, say 0,0,15. This means that the Registration is valid only for the next 15 minutes. Click the Consumer to view the time until which Registration is valid.
4. Create a remote portlet in a window for the Consumer. Check the remote portlet before and after the Registration cut -off time. After the lifetime expires, the remote portlet would not be rendered.
