Mashups are a new breed of web applications that get their data from external sources and combine them to create entirely new and innovative services. These are among the second generation web applications widely known as Web 2.0. Mashups are the fastest growing type of web applications. Google, Yahoo, Amazon and other companies have published the APIs to make it easy to integrate their data in a mashup. Google has even released a mashup editor for rapid development of mashups. The goal of this project is to understand the architecture and enabling technologies of mashups by creating a real-estate mashup to search the homes for sale within a ZIP code, and map the location using Google’s Map API. This mashup is created using the REST web protocol and AJAX, and alternatively using Google’s Mashup Editor.
