WebSphere Portal Server and Web Services
Figure 14: The administrator selects the portlet to be published
To publish a particular portlet to UDDI as a remote portlet web service, the administrator presses the Publish button beside that portlet. WebSphere Portal Server now prompts for a description for the portlet in a new screen (see Figure 15).
Figure 15: The administrator enters the remote portlet description
The administrator enters the description and presses the Publish button in the new screen. WebSphere Portal Server automatically creates a remote portlet web service description from the data entered by the administrator and the data stored in the WPS portlet registry and publishes it to the UDDI directory specified in the WPS settings. This may either be the global UDDI directory infrastructure or a corporate UDDI directory. When this action succeeds, WebSphere Portal Server displays a confirmation screen (see Figure 16).
