The MetaFrame tool integration platform is designed for the interactive combination and coordination of heterogeneous tools: complex tool combinations can be (semi-) automatically or interactively constructed and tested by on-line `meta-programming' in the interpreted, sequential tool coordination language HLL. The point of our design is the strict separation of a highly enhanced integration phase and a strongly supported coordination phase. This allows even non-experts to profitably coordinate the integrated tools to solve their own application-specific tasks. It is this profile which qualifies our coordination environment to serve as the Electronic Tool Integration (ETI) platform in the new international Springer Journal Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT).

This presentation has been given during the COST-247 2nd International Workshop on Applied Formal Methods in System Design (Zagreb, Croatia, June 18-19, 1997).
