This report presents the initial integration strategy of the KEEP Emulation Access Platform (EAP) components, with a focus on the methodologies used to integrate the Core Emulation Framework (CEF) with the Olonys Virtual Machine (VM), the Front-end Emulation Framework (FEF) and external web services. In this context the technical choices made such as the use of the compiler from the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), the adoption of Java for the development of the EF components, the consequent choice of the IcedTea6 Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and the rejection of any restriction of usage of the peripheral input/output libraries are explained. Also the report offers a set of lists of conventional programming styles and software technologies for the design and development of the CEF and FEF.
