Creating mashups in web applications can be a headache. Developers need to know intensive JavaScript, RSS, and Atom parsing, JSON parsing, and parsing other formats. You also need to study the low-level APIs provided by the mashup service providers and write a great deal of code to integrate the mashups with the web applications. Mashups4JSF is an open source project in incubation that aims at integrating mashup services with the JSF world. You will be able to construct rich and customized mashups by using simple tags. This article illustrates the architecture of Mashups4JSF, the configuration of the library, and how to create a mashup application with few lines of code using Mashups4JSF and the IBM® JSF Widget Library (JWL) on the WebSphere® Application Server V7.0 and JSF 2.
