I created a You Tube video
which illustrates how Mashup Center can be used to easily create a business application using web services supplied from IBM's Business Partner, StrikeIron
. StrikeIron provides over 100 live data sources and business functions over the web so they provide a good place to start when considering data services to use within a business application. This video first instructs users how to access the Lotus Greenhouse web site
, then how to start Lotus Mashups (which is a component of IBM Mashup Center), and then utilize StrikeIron's Zip Code Information and Census Information services within an application.
