Yahoo Pipes – SOA for the Web?

I recently learned of Yahoo Pipes after poking a little around WeFeelFine.org‘s technostack, and 50minutes of videocasts later, I’m quite engaged!

the-toobes-of-yahooSo how would I describe the Ytoobes? Online present ESB with simple BPEL engine and editor. What’s so special about this, is that they’ve lowered the learning curve for being a SOA Web configurer, and provide advanced functionality to the up-until-now static pages of non-enterpricy webpages!

When I look into my crystal ball, I see

  • Screenscraping webpages for providing RSS feeds
  • Advanced forms and workflows embedded into “static” databaseless webpages
  • A new contestant for enterpricy integration

Conclusion

A serious competitor for web-datasource extraction with a low entry-level for adoption that can be expensive to miss out on!

  1. Comment from a colleague; Yahoo pipes would seem the ideal tool for creating a quick-and-dirty screenscraping tool, for keeping an eye on a competitors prices and stock.
