Reusing frameworks instead of libraries can cause subtle architectural changes in an application, calling for innovative management solutions. We relate our experience in managing the Knowledge-Based Software Assistant project and offer tips for buying, building and using frameworks. One of the promises of object-oriented software development is that organizations can get a significant return on development investment because the code is easier to reuse. Software project managers are often eager to take the OO plunge for that reason, but are uncertain about the management issues they will face. There is also the problem of choosing the best form of reuse. Library-based reuse, the traditional reuse form, is more popular than framework-based reuse, but we have found that framework-based reuse offers many more benefits with the right management approach. We describe the lessons we learned when building the Knowledge-Based Software Assistant/Advanced Development Model
