In this thesis, a tag-based approach is proposed for predicting mashup patterns, thus deriving inspiration for potential new mashups from the community’s consensus. The proposed approach applies association rule mining techniques to discover relationships between APIs and mashups based on their annotated tags. The importance of the mined relationships is advocated as a valuable source for recommending mashup candidates while mitigating common problems in recommender systems. The proposed methodology is evaluated through experimentation using a real-life dataset. Results show that the proposed mining approach achieves prediction accuracy with 60% precision and 79% recall improvement over a direct string matching approach that lacks the mining information.
