Mashups versus composite applications Lots of definitions out there talking about the difference between mashups and composite applications. Some say composites are based on business data and mashups on Internet content. Others say composites are build by developers and mashups are built by end-users. I use mashups as a generic term to cover all of the above.
There are few other SharePoint Saturday sessions that are related to mashups.
Includes a few Australian government APIs. E.g. ABN lookup.
Security: Defining authorisation hierarchies in LOB systems is often a significant investment. Reflect authorisation in back-end systems. SSO required. Read-only scenarios: Mashups are not an all-powerful editing surface capable of editing any and all data. The LOB system is still the best interface for that. The last thing you want to do is go down the path of redeveloping the whole interface of a LOB system. Data problems: If there are substantial data problems, then solve those. Don’t use mashups to plaster it all together. LOB system experts: You will need to engage with other groups within the organisation. It makes sense, but you’ll be surprised how often there is too much separation between different IT practices.
