2.1What is a Mashup?
“Inweb development,a mashup is aweb applicationthat combines data from more than one source into a
single integrated tool. The term Mashup implies easy, fast integration, frequently done by access to openAPIs and data sources”.
Yahoo! Pipes is aweb applicationfrom Yahoo! that provides a graphical user interface for building mashup
applications that aggregateweb feeds, web pages,and other services, creating Web-based apps from
various sources, and publishing those apps, without needing to write code. The site works by letting users"pipe" information from different sources and then set up rules for how that content should be modified (e.g.filtering, counting).
