The following gives you a complete idea about the flow of request in a portal:
1. When a user launches an iView, the client sends an HTTP or HTTPS request to the Web server
2. The Web server recognizes the URL as a PRT request and then it triggers the PRT
3. The PRT parses the request and identifies the following:
Requested object from the PCD, either a page or an iView
User related data, such as personalization data, logon language, page personalization, iView personalization.
Additional pieces of information.
4. If the user that made the request has permissions for the requested object, the following information is obtained:
Portal component to be executed, for example the Page Builder.
Profile (set of properties) to be passed to the portal component. This may be a set of properties of an iView or page.
The PRT obtains an instance of the portal component to be executed, and provides it together with other information obtained from the PCD.
If the request is for a page, the activated portal component is the Page Builder. The Page Builder component parses the information, assembles the page, and produces the HTML.
If the request is for the content of an iView, the PRT activates the appropriate components, which in turn may use portal services to produce the HTML.
For example, the initial portal page, including its content, are assembled and produced by the Page Builder. Navigation in the portal page can activate a request for either the content of an iView or other pages.
5-The HTML is then returned to the browser
