Future Internet continues the tradition of publishing online high quality peer reviewed papers. The latest paper byBrandon Beemer and Dawn Gregg entitled ‘Mashups: A Literature Review and Classification Framework’ is a timely and indeed useful reference for anyone working in the field.
The papers abstract is as follows:
The evolution of the Web over the past few years has fostered the growth of a handful of new technologies (e.g. Blogs, Wiki’s, Web Services). Recently web mashups have emerged as the newest Web technology and have gained lots of momentum and attention from both academic and industry communities. Current mashup literature focuses on a wide array of issues, which can be partially explained by how new the topic is. However, to date, mashup literature lacks an articulation of the different subtopics of web mashup research. This study presents a broad review of mashup literature to help frame the 1subtopics in mashup research.
