Since the early 1980s, object-oriented frameworks have demonstrated that programmers can encapsulate a reusable, tailorable software architecture as a collection of collaborating, extensible object classes. Such frameworks are particularly important for developing open systems in which not only functionality but architecture is reused across a family of related applications. Unfortunately, the design of frameworks remains an art rather than a science, because of the inherent conflict between reuse —- packaging software components that can be reused in as many contexts as possible —- and tailorability —- designing software architectures easily adapted to target requirements.
