Hi,

Interested in learning on the mashups (*usecases) and implmentation techniques.
References : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mashup_(web_application_hybrid)

Types: Business Mashups, consumer mashups, and data mashups.
Specifically interested in UI mashups.

The article states: New versions of portal products are expected to eventually add mashup support while still supporting legacy portlet applications. (Liferay has support for the Portlet/Mashup).

Does the Liferay product supports the Mashups? If so, how?

This article provides some details. But not clear how, studying on it further.

Please post your thoughts!

No they're not really supported in any way.

The AtomPub wiki article refers to APIs but has nothing to do with UI, you'd still have to generate one.

David,

Thanks for quick reply. Does this below make sense anyways in developing mashups using Liferay Portal?

User Guide about OpenSocial which hopefully can come into use as an example for you:

Possibly, but I doubt the whole thing is well tested and have no idea what kinds of hiccups you'd run into along the way. And anyway it covers using a whole portlet as a gadget, and does not represent a mashup (in the classic sense) of two interfaces colliding.

"Mashups" were cool years ago, but outside of google maps I don't believe the concept really went very far.

Let me try to verify it with the Liferay.

If mashup is all about integrating the Social Gaget with Portal, then I believe I can look into this more.
https://www.liferay.com/documentation/liferay-portal/6.1/development/-/ai/lp-6-1-dgen11-creating-and-integrating-with-opensocial-gadgets-0

Is this understanding correct, we can call UI Mashups if we have UI component with two/more backend interfaces.

For an instance, we have the option to select the Realtime news/weather by region in UI Page.
Is this called a mash-up? Not sure how it is different from traditional portal?
If we are implementing OR we developing, this UI gadget is re-usable ( independent of the platform - mobile Or from the computer) and provides the combined services of weather and news (Two different integrations in the same page with 2 portals or so). If this is achievable can we call this as UI mashup.
