Object-oriented frameworks have become a popular form of reusable software. In particular, frameworks are exploited as architectural backbones of product families. Frameworks can provide an infrastructure for a set of compatible components, and a customizable component can be implemented as a framework. Although frameworks are recognized as a key technology supporting reusability, relatively little is known about the design and specialization methodologies for frameworks, and indeed about the character of a framework as a generic software unit. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss and compare existing approaches to manage object-oriented frameworks, covering both methodological and tool aspects.
