A Reference Framework on Native Application for Mobile Mashup
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Mashup is an application that uses and combines data, presentation or functionality from different sources. These data are aggregated to create values which may help in the decision making in a business organization or in daily life. A Mashup application also saves IT investment, since the enterprise does not need to make an individual application for every decision making IT tools. That is why; the growth rate of the Mashup adoption in the business organization is exponential. To a large degree does development in mobile industry follow the same path and mobile services and application rely to a large degree on combining external data into effective and new combinations.
The main aim of this study is to provide a reference framework on the native application for the mobile Mashup .In addition following sub goals are considered: point out the feasible architecture of the Mashup for mobile devices, describe and analyze the features and core elements of the different type Mashup, point out and analyze the necessary components for the Mashup, and define the best components to build a Mashup in the mobile devices. To do that research the following methods are followed: literature review, components development and performance test, propose reference framework based on performance test, Implementation and analysis of two case studies based on the proposed reference framework.
Subsequently, based on the methodology, this study came up with a reference framework for the consumer type mobile Mashup on the native application which consists of the REST client, JSON data and XML data, JSON and GSON parser for JSON data and SAX parser for XML data. Additionally, the experiments show that performance of web service protocol and parser depends on the length of data format. That is why, a user guideline is includes in the proposed reference framework.
Finally, two Mashup case studies are made based on the proposed reference framework. These implementations prove the acceptance of the proposed reference framework in the area of Native mobile Mashup application development.
