JSR286 explained : Resource Serving
By ranjansatya on Aug 13, 2007
Recently the JSR 286 draft was released for public review. The list of major changes in this new spec can be found in Deepak's blog. One of the new feature introduced in this new portlet spec is "Resource Serving".
In short, the resource serving feature provides the ability for a portlet to serve a resource which may be protected by the portal security and can leverage portlet context. More details about this new feature can be found in my blog.
