Subject Re: non portlet producer/consumer

     WSRP4J uses on the producer side Pluto code, but this is to be able 
to expose portlets to the consumers. You create a JSR-168 compliant 
portlet packed in a .war application and then you deploy it to WSRP4J 
(using Pluto). Then WSRP4J's WSRP implementation links WSRP consumer 
requests to portlet container requests. You do not use Pluto Portal on 
the producer side, but you DO NEED a portlet container, as WSRP4J is a 
Java implementation of WSRP specification. How do you intend to pack 
portlet applications in the producer side, then? You could use your own 
packaging system, but you would need to rewrite the entire management 
system provided by Pluto for portlets.
     As I mentioned earlier, you do not need a JSR-168 portlet container 
to be able to use WSRP, but you need a way to deploy portlets, and 
WSRP4J uses a JSR-168 portlet container to achieve this: Pluto.
