“Duct-taping” different systems together is a common task, and is generally regarded as “mostly harmless”.
However, “duct-taping” hides much more pitfalls than a cursory examination might reveal, especially when the constraints outside the developer’s control are many.
In this talk, a classification of the different integration scenarios is presented, along with methodologies to identify them and asses their complexity: those hiding the most dangerous pitfalls will be examined in detail, and methodologies and best practices to avoid them will be exposed, with a special care put into considerations about security and scalability.
