A great challenge for enterprises is the improvement of the utilization of their landscape of heterogeneous applications in complex EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) scenarios. Enterprise Application Integration Patterns help to address this challenge by describing recurring EAI problems and proposing possible solutions at an abstract level. However, EAI patterns are documentation only used by systems architects and developers to decide how to implement an integration solution. Thus, patterns do not specify how to produce the code that will actually implement the solution described by the pattern on a specific middleware. In this paper we introduce a framework that provides configuration capabilities for EAI patterns. The framework also allows to generate executable integration code from EAI patterns using a model-driven architecture approach. Furthermore, we present a tool providing this framework.
