What happens when someone who works on enterprise integration tools and
solutions for years steps back and takes a good look around? He
realises just how poor many enterprise integration systems really are.
In this talk, Steve will describe his experiences building RPC, CORBA,
J2EE, and Web Service (SOAP/WSDL) systems over the course of nearly 20
years, how the Web is finally influencing enterprise integration for
the better, and how he’s realized in hindsight just how much Erlang
could have greatly helped the situation.
