Lilith is a general purpose tool that provides a highly scalable, easy distribution of user code across a heterogeneous computing platform. By handling the details of code distribution and communication such a framework allows for the rapid development of tools for the use and management of large distributed systems. This speed-up in development not only enables the easy creation of tools as needed but also facilitates the ultimate development of more refined, hard-coded tools as well. Lilith is written in Java, providing platform independence and further facilitating rapid tool development through object reuse and ease of development. We present the user-involved objects in the Lilith Distributed Object System and the Lilith User API. We present an example of tool development, illustrating the user calls, and present results demonstrating Lilith's scalability
