Towards flexible and lightweight integration of web applications by end‐user programming

Towards flexible and lightweight integration of web applications by end‐user programming Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present a method to realize the flexible and lightweight integration of general web applications. Design/methodology/approach – The information extraction and functionality emulation method are proposed to realize the web information integration for the general web applications. All the processes of web information searching, submitting and extraction are run at client‐side by end‐user programming like a real web service. Findings – The implementation shows that the required programming techniques are within the abilities of general web users, and without needing to write too many programs. Originality/value – A Java‐based class package was developed for web information searching/submitting/extraction, which users can integrate easily with the general web applications. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Web Information Systems Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present a method to realize the flexible and lightweight integration of general web applications. Design/methodology/approach – The information extraction and functionality emulation method are proposed to realize the web information integration for the general web applications. All the processes of web information searching, submitting and extraction are run at client‐side by end‐user programming like a real web service. Findings – The implementation shows that the required programming techniques are within the abilities of general web users, and without needing to write too many programs. Originality/value – A Java‐based class package was developed for web information searching/submitting/extraction, which users can integrate easily with the general web applications.
