Elucidating the mashup hype definition challenges
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 subtopics in mashup research.
In this final review, 3 and 4 articles were moved from the Frameworks group to the Access Control and End-User Programming groups, respectively.
Both authors discussed this change in classification and it was decided that while the 7 articles moved were framework oriented, the focus of the frameworks and subsequent research was primarily on the groups they were moved to.
Additionally, the references of each web mashup publication retrieved were also reviewed to identify additional mashup publications that fell outside of our search criteria.
In result, 60 web mashup publications were gathered, which are summarized in Appendix A.
The publications within each group of literature were reviewed a second time to help develop names (access control, integration, agents, frameworks, end user programming, enterprise) and definitions of each group.
The first step in the review process was to gather as many mashup related publications as possible.For example, the first metric used to evaluate e Commerce sites simply emphasized page views, but now e Commerce sites are evaluated by their cost per click .In addition to e Commerce applications, other Web 2.0 applications include Blogs and Wikis, both of which foster communication, collaboration, work processes, and knowledge sharing [1,4,5,6].The term mashup was actually derived from the music industry, where disc jockeys remix original content from various artists to create new material .Therefore the idea behind a web mashup is to synthesize new information by reusing and combining existing content from disparate information sources.
