Abstract

In the last decade user interface mashups have gained much interest both in academia and in industry. Their development paradigm enables end users to develop applications without dealing with complexities of the underlying technologies by using so-called widgets. However, user interface mashups haven’t reached their full potential yet. Widgets are currently implemented in an isolated manner hindering seamless user-mashup interaction due to the need of manual state synchronization between widgets. Even though mashup run-time environments often enable inter-widget communication, current widget implementations surprisingly make use of it seldom. In this paper, we present a generic approach to semi-automatically extend widgets with dedicated inter-widget communication functionality. Thus, facilitating many cumbersome tasks of the end users when combining different widgets to a single application.
