Imagine you are working for a retail company you had to create an integration which hooks up all of your point of sales locations to your data center. You are not only facing a wide variety of operating systems your platform needs to execute on, but also instable and/or slow networks and ever-changing requirements.

You have tried with several large companies – the integration specialists – promising a variety of features helping to solve the problem:

* Central Management
* “No programming, just config”
* Easy deployment
* No Testing Required

In our talk we are going to challenge those features based on a decade of experience implementing a container framework geared to be used in large heterogenous networks. We will show why the “Slideware” will fail in the end and a test driven approach leads to success eventually.

Based on real project requirements we will give an overview of an integration framework designed around automated testing, distribution and a minimal cost of ownership. The framework is open source and ready to use in real world integration scenarios.
