The !CHAOS framework for control systems has been designed for a wide range of different applications in terms of performance, size and complexity of the system to control and the technologies used for implementing its services. Sub- components and core-services of the !CHAOS framework have been already tested in control applications and are currently in use as part of control systems of accelerators at LNF.
Recently, the !CHAOS framework has been used for up- grading the control system of the DAFNE Beam-Test Facility (BTF), a part of the DAFNE accelerator complex at Labora- tori Nazionali di Frascati.
This document presents the development and the first operational experience of the BTF control system setup, the solutions adopted to fix bugs and optimise the perfor- mance and reports on the current stage of development of the !CHAOS framework.
