Executive Summary

The rapid growth of social networking sites and web communities have motivated web sites to expose their APIs to external developers who create mashups by assembling existing functionalities. Current APIs, however, aim toward developers with programming expertise; they are not directly usable by wider class of users who do not have programming background, but would nevertheless like to build their own mashups. To address this need, the paper proposes a spreadsheet-based Web mashups development framework, which enables users to develop mashups in the popular spreadsheet environment.
