Frederick W. Long, Edwin J. Morris
Environment framework technologies are becoming increasingly popular as aids to the construction of software engineering environments populated with integrated CASE tools. PCTE, a framework technology, is generating significant interest among environment users and builders as a mechanism for data management. This report details the history and current status of PCTE and PCTE-based environments. The major capabilities of PCTE are identified, and the techniques for integration of tools into PCTE are discussed.
