thanks for your answer.

The order is: 

1. processAction() portlet A
2. render() portlet A 
3. render() portlet B
4. render() other portlests C,D, ...

I'm porting a MVC web framework (WebWork 1) into a portlet. The classical MVC approach is based on one atomic request-response cycle. The action class needs the input parameters, creates a ValueStack (the action's result) which is passed to the jsp pages via request attributes. In the portlet I have to split this process into two phases, namely the processAction and the render phase. Therefore I need a way to pass the ValueStack from the processAction phase to the render phase.

I think render params are no solution for my problem because first I don't want to make results directly visible for the user and second it's practically impossible to set java objects as render objects.
