  • Application Frameworks

    Posted on May 31st, 2005 Alan No comments

    An application framework can be described as ‘a skeleton
    of an application that can be customised by an application
    developer’. A key difference between a framework and a traditional
    library of code is what the authors call ‘inversion of control’.
    With a library, the developer reuses library components by writing
    a main program that calls them as and when required. An
    application framework, however, calls the developer’s code and is
    responsible for structure and flow control. You never write
    main(). Another distinction is that frameworks are often domain
    specific.
