Web-based software and services are available all over the world instantly after they are released online. They can be used and updated without need to install anything, and once in place, they can also be reused in other contexts. As the amount of web services and devices used to consume data has exploded, it is becoming difficult to handle and gain access to the relevant data. Mashups are a new breed of web applications that act as content aggregates that leverage the power of the Web to support instant, worldwide sharing of content. In this paper, we apply mashupping technologies to software development, and introduce the concept of mashware, where components loaded on-demand from different sites form real applications building on the strengths of each individual component. In addition, we discuss our proof-of-concept system, where a mashware prototype has been realized for mobile devices.

Mashup-sovellukset ovat uudenlaisia ohjelmistoja, joissa tekijät yhdistelevät webistä valmiina saatavaa sisältöä uusin, innovatiivisin tavoin. Tässä webinaarissa visioidaan, mitä vastaava malli tarkoittaisi ohjelmistokehitykselle. Toisin sanoen: miten ohjelmistoja – jotka esitelmän otsikon mukaisesti ovat mashwarea – voisi rakentaa eri puolilta webiä ladattavista palasista. Tämä sallisi hajautetun ohjelmistokehityksen, pilvipalveluiden laajamittaisen hyödyntämisen osana komponentteja sekä aiempaa nopeamman kehitystyylin.
