Doctoral Colloquium: Integrating Web Content into Mashups on Desktop and Mobile Devices

  • Arto Salminen
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7096)


Mashups, web application hybrids that combine content from different services, are exploiting pervasiveness of the Internet and offering great value for the end user. Constantly evolving web technologies and new web services open up unforeseen possibilities for mashup development. Combining dynamic scripts with binary software is an interesting option. However, developing mashups with current methods and tools for existing deployment environments is challenging. This work concentrates on these challenges and finds ways to solve and circumvent issues related to mashups. Another important topic is analyzing the impact of new web technologies on mashup development. This research presents the mashups as a new breed of web applications that are intended for parsing the web content into easily accessed form on both regular computers as well as on other platforms, e.g. on embedded devices.
