It became a habit to write about our widgets (Enterprise Mashup Widgets and Enterprise Mashup Widgets (continued)), so here is yet another example that you can try for yourself (download link at the end of this blog entry). This one nicely informs people about SAP by mashing up information from several different sources. These include SAP press releases, news on SAP from google news and yahoo news. You see the headlines in the widget and if something’s interesting you can click on the link and read the article. This keeps you up to date on what’s going on in an SAP context.

It’s plain and simple. Study the headlines with a mouse-over:

Switch to another news channel, if you like:

Search within a news channel:

and get a modified result. Click on what you want to read:

and read the news:

Please note that the search on yahoo and google triggers a new keyword search on the respective sites. Due to the underlying technology of google and yahoo, you’ll get a modified result that takes the body of a news article into account. However, in case of the SAP Press Release Channel, we are only searching the headlines. This difference explains, why there are often no results in the SAP press release search.

Try the widget yourself! Download it here.

    Alexander,

    thanks for your widget.

    What I like most about it is the fact that you invested some time in it’s own design and not used the ‘standard SAP’ design.

    regards,

    Hi Alexander,

    widget looks great.

    I am using a PHP plugin called Magpie RSS to achieve something similar (ie SAP News mashups) on my blog http://www.pixelbase.co.uk

    Thing I like about Magpie RSS is the feed caching, which saves on bandwidth, but in case of a widget I would assume this is of less importance.

    Thanks again,
    Michael Koch
