We attended the Silicon Valley Code Camp this weekend. I presented an impromptu "lightning talk" on Presto, lightning because I had to do it in 5 minutes or less I think. I was able to give a good overview of enterprise mashups and even demo Presto Developer Edition within that time.
But more importantly, Kishore Subramanian presented a session titled - Building and Sharing Enterprise Mashups & Mashlets. There were about 30 attendees. Kishore went over the concepts behind our mashup approach like mashables, mashups, and shareables. Kishore demonstrated SalesForce mashups and walking through the internals including EMML code, about how you can merge data from SalesForce with data from internal proprietary data source and merge/combine to produce a mashup (virtual) service. He demonstrated how to invoke a mashup via a REST interface, which makes it easier to use a complex/mashup service. He also showed how to make a Mashlet using MashletMaker and share the mashlet. And finally he demonstrated Wires to show how to visually mashup by drag, drop and connect. I captured a few interesting questions that I wanted to share with the community... [Read More...]

Presto Mashlets can be embedded in Salesforce.com pages using S-Controls. Salesforce.com S-Controls are reusable UI extensions for adding external content and can be embedded anywhere in your Salesforce application. With support for contextual wiring, S-Controls provide an easy way to embed powerful, dynamic and relevant mashups in your Salesforce application.

How exactly does the mashup process work? What does Presto really do? These are a couple of common newbie questions. I have had different explanations for this, but of late, I have narrowed down on the following elevator pitch (trust me, this textual explanation looks long, but I can explain really fast in person) that I have used successfully with other developers recently. So I thought I will share this with the community in case it helps others to understand the process and artifacts around enterprise mashups.
I found it easier to explain the whole mashup workflow using three terms: Mashables, Mashups and Shareables (OK, I confess, these may not be in the English Dictionary yet :-) ). [Read More...]

Let's Mash! [I wanna hear David Bowie sing that!]
I am excited! We are excited! You see, today is a very special day for us developers at JackBe. We are putting all the work we have been doing over the last 2 years into the hands of the person most important to us - you, the mashup developer! I am happy to announce that we are making the Presto Developer Edition available to everyone for FREE to download and develop enterprise mashups! We are now empowering even more developers to free themselves from some conventional problems they have been dealing with by using, developing, deploying and applying the concept of enterprise mashups.
What's in it for me, did you say? [Read More...]

The Presto Developer Edition is finally here! Let me share you my experiencies throughout the installation process and the publication of my first mashup, using the code example I wrote weeks ago.
I'll be covering windows installation but it applies for both windows/unix. The only difference is the .bat and .sh (to be run with ./filename.sh ). [Read More...]

October 21 is the launch day for the Developer Edition and I'll be the first to take it to my campus and share it with others, let them know that the MDC is here and encouraging them to visit (and contribute). This kind of knowledge sharing can mean great things like job opportunities and personal satisfaction. I hope to see many new users of this site! [Read More...]

We've just published a couple of articles in SOA Magazine and SOA World Magazine that greatly expand on the synergy between enterprise mashups and SOA. It's quite a list! [Read More...]
