Subject RE: incorporating recent blog post in a different web application
Date Mon, 24 Jul 2006 13:45:08 GMT
Thanks dave, Just what I needed.
Now I see I can configure a ping location poiting a a servlet I will
write in my portal application so that it knows when it should re-parse
the rss feed from roller.
Can you please point me to some docs regarding the actual ping protocol
(is it a simple HTTP request, what request parameters I should expect
Thanks a lot.

You can Roller's Atom (or RSS) feeds to get the information you want.

You can get the site-wide feed from http://localhost:8080/roller/atom
or an individual blog's feed from

Use ROME ( to parse the feed(s) into a Java
object model and some JSP code to display the results.
