Subject: RE: [wsrp] Issue #31: handleEvent or handleEvents?

Guidelines are a good idea. In general, I would suggest that any bulk operation results from a logical need to batch, for example, for copyPortlets(), an admin may select/highlight several portlets and then request they be copied to another registration. In other worlds, we should not batch just to optimize use of lower level transports. And we should always note that batching may not imply any atomicity, though both efficiency and fault tolerance can be aided by our logically batched operations.

Subject: RE: [wsrp] Issue #31: handleEvent or handleEvents?


This issue has been discussed under an email subject line of " [wsrp] handleEvent or handleEvents?". Before tailing off, this thread came to several guidelines for any solution moving this operation back to a bulk character:

1. Portlets are loosely coupled components integrated onto the page by the Consumer.
2. Events are independent notifications that something has occurred, which receiving portlets may use to impact their state.

3. There are times when a Consumer will care what failures have occurred (e.g. for retry purposes).
4. Portlets should be able to indicate they also care about event processing failures.

Any additional comments before we move to drafting a solution?
