Abstract

In this paper we propose Eclipse platform as a great solution to the problem of designing and developing mashup applications. Thanks to its modular and pliable architecture, Eclipse can be used to satisfy all mashup’s application needs, allowing developers to act at each level of a mashup application, from the simple action of retrieving, managing and mashing data to combine complex structures or architectures to obtain real mashup applications and to bring them to web, using all new Eclipse’s web 2.0 features. The combined use of the Open Source technology of Eclipse and the mashup philosophy gives to enterprises, universities, research centres, freelancers, industries, and to each person that needs an application built to satisfy his own needs, the possibilities to obtain the application they need in a simple and quick way, with all the support of the Eclipse community. For enterprises this means building situational applications to manage all the enterprise business processes that the major Enterprise Applications cannot treat due to the particularities of them. The specific nature of these processes and their less relevance in the global mission of an enterprise make them less attractive for software houses and customers due to the high costs of designing and development. Costs that the proposed solution can cut easily. For universities and research centres this solution can be the right way to integrate and mash information and data belonging to these two worlds, often too less interconnected. For freelancers and other people this can be a real possibility to simplify their activities and improve productivity. In conclusion we show also the aim the governs the Eclipse community and the constant rejuvenation process that gives us more trust on the future possibility in this way.
