DIGITAL WORLD VIEWER
The purpose of the tool is twofold: first of all is to allow people at runtime to access and interacts with events and connect several other services in a visual way. Second is to allow people to program themselves the interfaces and the interactions among them at modelling time. The tool is implemented by a data mashup interface based on social gadgets. The openness of the architecture allows technicians to add any kind of gadget/widget to interact with database, services and, of course, events defining the GUI, the behaviour of the piece of software as well as the Input/Output interfaces. End-users (usually not technical) are free to define, for its own account, which gadget to view, where to view them and which interaction are activated between gadgets.
The architecture is based on the software “Application Mashup – Wirecloud” offering an end-user centred web application mashup platform. The software has been originally developed by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and finalised in the latest version under the FI-PPP framework in the FIWARE project released in the “Applications/Services and Data Delivery” chapter. The original download is available in the FIWARE catalog at the following address: http://catalogue.fiware.org/enablers/application-mashup-wirecloud. On top of this application, a set of gadgets has been developed in order to look at events coming from the real world.
