Salesforce as Google gadget data source

Hi,

Just read this article on "Force.com as a Google Visualization Data Source"

http://wiki.developerforce.com/index.php/Force.com_as_a_Google_Visualization_Data_Source

Wanted to find out if that is still the current technical path to
getting Force.com data into iGoogle.  Also curious if that use case is
common among salesforce.com users. Also looking for any other similar

technical articles.

I think it's still a valid technique, but I don't think there's any one best way to do it.  This article focused on a single use case - creating a Visualforce page & controller that could act as the Google data source.

 

There may be other ways to approach this - perhaps using JavaScript Remoting on the Visualforce page for added flexibility.
