Portlets: The Sequel

Thank God it finally happened [theserverside.com]! The Portlet specification 2.0 is under a 2 week review in the Java Community Process (JCP) and if nothing else it includes some new features that were sorely lacking in 1.0. First off, we'll now have inter-portlet communication. What, you say? There wasn't any communications supported in specification 1.0? No and it really frustrated me when I first started doing Portlet stuff. I didn't think it would be a problem for two portlets to communicate a current object under inspection with each other. It seemed with specification 1.0 we took a step backward into the stovepiped world of the past, it's very refreshing to see bleeding edge specifications correct mistakes of the past.
