  • 1. IBIS - Intelligent Band Information System Matthias Tylkowski Roland Kölbel
  • 2. IBIS Main Page
  • 3. Overview
      • Wikipedia /DBpedia
      • Eventful
      • Twitter
      • Youtube
      • Google Maps
      • Amazon
    • Mashup of different services to display useful information about bands – all in one page
    • Integration of the following services:
  • 4. Idea
    • Distribution in one single HTML page
    • HTML page itself is functional from every client machine
    • User can easily customize the content
  • 5. Implementation
    • wikipedia/dbpedia for information about bands
    • Youtube for showing videos of the bands
    • Google Maps for marking locations for the next Events
    • Eventful for information about future events
    • Amazon for offering related articles like t-shirts, cds, dvds…
    • Twitter – for retrieving current messages about the band
  • 6. Implementations issues
    • Using mashup engines like Yahoo pipes and Deri Pipes
      • Not stable
      • Not yet fully developed
      • Partly hard to understand because not well documented
      • Not enough possibilities to customize
    • The choice: Implementing the mashup from the scratch
  • 7. Request Example
  • 8. Request Example
    • Include a new <script> element with the proxy and the desired url as „src“ attribute value
    • Callback is initiated by the returned content
    • var callbackId = this .setCallback(callback);
    • $( 'head' ).insert( new Element( 'script' ,
    • { 'type' : 'text/javascript' , 'src' : 'http://proxy.3wep.de/url.php?callbackId=' + callbackId + '&url=' + encodeURIComponent(url)}));
    • $client = new Zend_Http_Client ( $_GET [ 'url' ]);
    • $output = $client -> request ()-> getBody ();
    • echo 'callCallback('' . $_GET [ 'callbackId' ] . '','' . $output . '');' ;
  • 9. Client side Mashup
    • Client and server side Mashup
    • Nearly all data aggregation on client side
    • Server side part is just proxy, some XSLT processing for specific services and signature generation for Amazon
  • 10. User Interaction
    • Service orchestration through user interaction.
    • The user can choose which services he wants to see (choice of services) and how they should look like (look and feel: position, size)
  • 11. Service Orchestration
    • Data transport through global variable and formal parameter
    • Global variable for geo-position: position is only asked once when entering the page and can be used by all services
  • 12. Clones
    • Every visit to the page creates a new instance, changes are locally and can be saved persistent
  • 13. Users
    • IBIS was designed to be used by everyone
    • There is a help for those who have problems
    • All services can be created via drag and drop
  • 14. IBIS Help
  • 15. Software Requirements
    • The IBIS Mashup works without any browser add-ons
    • It is best working with Mozilla Firefox 3.5 and higher, other browsers might work as well except Microsoft Internet Explorer
    • Mozilla Firefox 3.5 or higher is also recommended for the usage of the geo-location feature
  • 16. Widgets
    • The Mashup runs on the IBIS Server, but can be integrated into any other Webpage via <iframe>.
    • A copy can also be created and executed locally
  • 17. Concluding remarks
    • Services as windows on a canvas/dashboard
    • Each service is draggable, resizable and can be closed
    • Design can be changed on-the-fly
    • Page can be saved local or on the server with access through a generated link
    • Search of band related events in a radius of 400km around the user position
  • 18. Concluding remarks
    • Automatical refresh of changing sources (Twitter)
    • Error Message if services does not answer in between 30 seconds
  • 19.
