Description:
The spreadsheet, a popular productivity tool, recently has gained attention as a potential web services mashup environment targeted towards end-users. The project aims to bring the advantages of spreadsheet paradigm to mashup users to ease the process of creating mashup applications.



Today, most of mashup engines such as JackBe Presto, IBM Mashup Center, Kapow, etc have provided spreadsheet connectors letting spreadsheet users to consume existing mashup applications in their repositories directly into their spreadsheets. This provides users an opportunity to access a larger set of information thus make the spreadsheet more useful for data management.


It would be interesting if we can bring the advantages of spreadsheet paradigm to the process of creating mashup applications. Spreadsheet users (e.g. secretaries, accountants, etc) can easily use the tool with minimal learning required.
