The spread of mobile devices empowers more and more end users to access services publicly available on the Web. It also encourages users to construct applications satisfying their situational needs, by customizing and combining the huge amount of online resources. Mobile mashups have the potential to accommodate this trend, providing a flexible paradigm for a service-based development of mobile applications. This paper introduces and End User Development (EUD) framework, based on a model-driven approach for the design and the automatic generation of mobile mashups. The approach is characterized by a “lightweight” composition paradigm that exploits visual notations for the specification of data integration and service synchronization rules.
