22.2 Understanding Events

An event is something that happens when a link or button is clicked in a portlet. A portlet's events are specified in the file provider.xml. When a portlet (with events) is placed on an Oracle Portal page, the page designer can choose what happens when the event occurs. The options are:

  • Go to another page, and optionally pass values to that page's parameters.

  • Redisplay the current page.
