Portlets are dynamic entities that have a life-cycle used to generate dynamic HTML, cHTML or WML markup fragments. The aggregation of these portlets is used to create a page on the web or a wireless device. Currently, there are XML based tools that only allow to add pre-existing portlets to a page. Also, there are user interfaces that allow to add portlets to pages at any point in time. However, these approaches are not automated and require human intervention. The publication describes a fully automated technique of discovering new portlets getting deployed to the Portal server so that the appropriate page compositions can consume them at the appropriate time
