The software industry is currently experiencing a paradigm shift towards web-based software and web-enabled mobile devices. With the Web as the ultimate information distribution platform, mashups that combine data, code and other content from numerous web sites are becoming popular. Unfortunately, there are various limitations when building mashups that run in a web browser. The problems are even more challenging when using those mashups on mobile devices. In this paper, we present our experiences in building mashups using Qt, a Nokia-owned cross-platform application framework that provides built-in support for web browsing and scripting. These experiences are part of a larger activity called Lively for Qt, an effort that has created a highly interactive, mobile web application and mashup development environment on top of the Qt framework.
