There is an urgent need to provide a sound generic framework for method and toolintegration, where many differing notations are used, software development is distributedand management support for the software development process is provided. This paperargues that there is much to be learnt from proven practical techniques for softwareconstruction, particularly those that support distributed software integration, heterogeneityand software management. Configuration Programming is one such approach whichadvocates the use of a separate, declarative configuration language for the description ofsystem structure. It has been used in the Conic Environment for the development ofdistributable software, and is being extended for the configuration of heterogeneouscomponents programmed in different programming languages. A number of software toolsexist for the development, construction and management of Conic systems. This papershows how an analogous set of the principles, practice and tools from configurationprogramming can be combined with recent work on ViewPoints1 to provide a configurablef ramework for method and tool integration.
