Martin Elsässer and Steffen Müller will give an overview of the
insurance agency information system "VerIA" and its 10-year history.

different integration features of the IDE.
* Building GUIs in VA Smalltalk and Seaside, Joachim Tuchel
In this session, Joachim will show parallels between VA Smalltalk's
model of building GUIs and the component concept and callback mechanisms
in Seaside. He will focus on how to build a web server application with
VA Smalltalk, turning a fat client into a web server, including typical
changes in the application's design and architecture that are necessary
to serve multiple users. Joachim will also discuss how to integrate a VA
Smalltalk-based Seaside application into existing web/intranet
infrastructures in the enterprise.
