Instantiation of a remote portlet

Once the portlets are configured, as we saw earlier, they are visible on the Portlet Definitions tabbed page of the Admin console. We can instantiate the portlet by using the link next to it. This will add an entry for the portlet on the Portlet Instances tab, along with the current instances.

An instantiated portlet can be included in any portal page layout, just like any local portlet. Although the portlet instances look and behave like a local portlet, WSRP allows it to communicate transparently and execute its functions on the remote server, while serving the needs of the local portal application.
