JavaScript Dataflow Architecture: Mashup Creation Prototype

Category: JavaScript, Toolkit

Seung Chan Lim and his team have been working on research prototypes to make the creation of mashups simple.

JavaScript Dataflow Architecture is the fruits of their labour.

The idea of the research is to allow adhoc assembly of disparate Javascript, HTML and Web services to do rapid
prototyping of Web mash ups. The research artifacts include a small Javascript kernel that allows black box packaging, and a visual IDE that lets users assemble these components quickly.

The motiviation is that Web mash ups are difficult to create for those who are not highly-technical and the process can be cumbersome. Our hope is that using the architecture as well as the tool we can make this much easier and more adhoc.

Check out the demo to see the tool in action.

I read the paper and I think it’s very interresting. Actually the OpenAjax Alliance should be looking into this. It’s a perfect vehicle for inter-toolkiit connetivity,a s well as encapsulating widgets in general. Really good stuff
