Within the electronic CAD domain there exist several frameworks each with a different set of services, which results in the specific support of dedicated design activities. One of the most innovative framework systems is the JESSI- COMMON-Framework (JCF). In contrast to JCF, a widespread ECAD framework (called FMCAD) has nearly complementary goals: while JCF offers strong support for working with consistent data concurrently, the basic functionality of FMCAD heavily supports the designer.

As described in the paper, this ultimate goal could not yet be reached, but the achieved results and experience with the existing prototype emphasize that this integration and encapsulation could be very helpful for future frameworks.
