Liferay Web Proxy Module for Digital Experience Platform 7.1

The Web Proxy Portlet allows web applications to be embedded within a portlet while keeping the user interaction within the portal context. The portlet is deprecated and was removed from Digital Experience Platform (DXP) 7.1 due to low adoption. The portlet will not be released as an app on Marketplace.


The portlet is implemented using the PortletBridge project which is no longer under active development. For this reason, alternatives should be sought if the same functionality is needed. Issues reported concerning the Web Proxy portlet will not be resolved in DXP 7.1 according to the Deprecated Items support policy.
