15.8.2. Default configuration

The default producer configuration is to require that consumers register with it before providing access its services but does not require any specific registration properties (apart from what is mandated by the WSRP standard). It does, however, require consumers to be registered before sending them a full service description. This means that our WSRP producer will not provide the list of offered portlets and other capabilities to unregistered consumers. The producer also uses the default RegistrationPolicy paired with the default RegistrationPropertyValidator. We will look into property validators in greater detail later in Section 15.8.3, “Registration configuration”. Suffice to say for now that this allows users to customize how Portal's WSRP Producer decides whether a given registration property is valid or not.
JBoss Portal 2.6.3 introduces a web interface to configure the producer's behavior. You can access it by clicking on the "Producer Configuration" tab of the "WSRP" page of the "admin" portal. Here's what you should see with the default configuration:
As would be expected, you can specify whether or not the producer will send the full service description to unregistered consumers, and, if it requires registration, which RegistrationPolicy to use (and, if needed, which RegistrationPropertyValidator), along with required registration property description for which consumers must provide acceptable values to successfully register.
