This site contains all information concerning the SalesPoint Framework Project.


The users of the SalesPoint framework are software developers, mostly undergraduate students. The framework supports the development of point of sale simulations ranging from simple vending machines to big department stores. Typical applications include an exchange office where you can obtain foreign currency, a post office offering stamps and a well-defined set of services, a drugstore, or a video shop. The simulations comprise both business with customers (selling, buying, or renting goods) and administrative tasks (like accounting, refilling the stores, removing slow-moving articles, and putting new kinds of items on sale).

The SalesPoint Framework is a joint project between two german universities, Technische Universität Dresden and Universität der Bundeswehr München. It is used in software project courses in both universities since 1997.
