My previous blog mentioned about web slice, which can be integrated to IE nicely. Now, can such nice web slices be integrated (mashed-up) to web pages? It's easy to do it on the receiving end, through manipulating XHTML DOM dynamically. What's difficult now is the publishing end. I am not aware of any neat way to just get a particular web slice. Maybe webpage scraping does work but not ideal.
Here is my imagination. Can we use REST and do some URL processing to get a particular web slice? For example, assuming there is a web slice with id "bidstatus", the a URL "http://example.com/examplepage/webslice/bidstatus" or "http://example.com/example.aspx@bidstatus" will retrieve that exact web slice. Maybe this is already there but I just don't know.
