1 Framework-based development is one of the major challenges in the field of rapid development of distributed applications. J2EE-based web applications represent an extremely interesting context for which development frameworks should be provided. Unfortunately, there are few integrated frameworks for such environments developed from a software engineering perspective. This paper presents the detailed design of JAFAR, our pattern based J2EE framework. It provides a way for framework developers to concretely reuse our approach or to compare their approaches to JAFAR. It also shows how such frameworks should be considered from a software engineering perspective, and it highlights the advantage of relating frameworks to a development methodology supported by a case tool.
