FreeGate is an application to create a technically advanced, easy to use integration system with professional support and high scalability. This system will provide the possibility to integrate common systems like FTP, databases or web technologies as well as domain specific systems and protocols like HL7 or DICOM in the healthcare sector.

The goal of this project is not to reinvent the wheel but to use an existing and already proven open source EAI system, eliminate the remaining drawbacks and make it ready for professional use.

FreeGate is based on an open source EAI system called Mule. The drawbacks of this technically very mature system mainly consist of lacking usability, missing connectivity and protocols for domain specific systems as well as a locally available professional support. FreeGate compensates these issues and provides an adequate, free of charge ESB-system for the professional use.
