We present the framework development process for a virtual learning environment (VLE). The VLE framework, based on a multitier architecture, is a generic solution that allows the creation of different VLE Web applications. We outline the process of the VLE domain framework development, from analysis phase to custom application generation by framework instantiation. We propose and discuss a set of mechanisms for domain analysis and framework design when large-scale applications are considered. The VLE framework is defined as a composition of a set of utility frameworks arranged in a layered architecture. Our approach of framework composition and interframework protocol based collaboration is highlighted. The VLE framework has been used to generate customized VLE applications based on specific educational models and requirements.
