Doing the Monster Map Mash


In this chapter, we’re going to explore writing our first mashup with GWT. Mashups are one of the distinguishing characteristics of Web 2.0 applications and are created when you take capabilities or data from external sources and pull them together, integrating them into a single interface. The external sources are typically other web sites and their data may be obtained by the mashup developer in various ways including but not limited to APIs, XML feeds, and screen scraping. If you have a Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feed, a geocoder (a way to switch postal addresses into latitude and longitude coordinates), and a Google Maps account, you’ve got all the makings of your very own mashup.
