Abstract

The ability to instantly publish software worldwide, and the ability to dynamically combine data, code and other content from numerous web sites all over the world has opened up entirely new possibilities for software development. In web terminology, a web site that combines (“mashes up”) content from more than one source into an integrated experience is referred to as a . At present, the development of mashups usually relies on the tools for composing server-side software, and off-the-shelf browser is commonly assumed as the runtime environment. However, when considering client-side mashups that are well-suited for mobile devices due to local processing and associated interactivity, numerous complications exist. One of these problems is available tool support, which is commonly targeted to desktops and browsers. In this paper, we introduce a tool for developing client-side mashup applications. In spirit, the tool is similar to tools available for mainstream mashup development, but all the actual processing is done on the client side using a special purpose runtime environment.
