Abstract

Mashup technologies enable end-users to compose situational applications from Web-based services. A particular problem is to find high-level service composition models that a) are intuitive and expressive enough to be easily used by end-users and b) allow for efficient runtime support and integration on the Web. We propose a novel approach that leverages a metaphor of document collaboration: end-users declare the coordination and aggregation of peer contributions into a joint document. Peers provide contributions as Web-based services that allow a) integrating any Web-accessible resource and b) orchestrating the collaboration process. Thus, collaborative document mashups enable lightweight, situational collaboration that is not addressed by most BPM or CSCW systems. In this demo we present our document service infrastructure and collaboration RIA, which allows collaborators to declare and participate in document collaborations in an interactive, intuitive and dynamic way.
