Computer Science thesis dissertation project developed in 2007 by Carlos Villavicencio (@po5i) and David Chang (@DavidFernandoC). Xavier Ochoa (@xaoch) as thesis director from the Computer Engineering Faculty (FIEC), at Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral (ESPOL) University.
This publication aims to create a framework that can be used to generate Interactive Web Applications that uses and integrates data from web services and media repositories. Similar tools had not been exploited at the time in web development. This framework is to be used by web developers with the intention of seeding a new trend in web development. Exploration of available web development tools, standards and programming languages is done first, including concepts surrounding Ajax and mashups. Available APIS and search engines are described second.
Problem resolution and all related entities with the framework are analyzed, a solution design is proposed, and them its functioning model and dynamic behavior. Previously mentioned design is then implemented, using the selected web development standards and programming languages. Classes and logical model are implemented and explained. To test the proposed solution, a heuristic framework and open source API was developed that we named The FindJira Framework.
FindJira was also featured at Programmable Web, at the following link: http://www.programmableweb.com/mashup/findjira
