Mashups imply the lightweight combination of distributed web resources – a paradigm which can be also applied to the presentation layer to build interactive web applications. However, current solutions are limited to very basic composition patterns and do not reflect the coordination needs of the user interface. To tackle this problem, we propose a novel approach for modeling rich communication patterns as part of a mashup composition model, which supports the synchronization between widgets, asynchronous data requests to backend services, and interaction techniques like drag-and-drop. The concepts were realized and validated with a number of sample applications.
