Executive Summary

Application frameworks have been successfully used as valuable tools to improve software quality while reducing development efforts. Nevertheless, frameworks still face important challenges in order to be widely adopted. In particular, framework instantiation is still a painful task requiring application developers to understand the intricate details surrounding the framework design. Some approaches to alleviate this problem have already been proposed in the literature but they are usually either just a textual cross-referenced document of the instantiation activities or too tied to technology or specific application domains. In this paper, the authors present the results of latest investigations to improving the approach to framework instantiation. In particular, they discuss process languages that have been developed to guide framework.
