Abstract (Short Form)

This dissertation presents role modeling for framework design. Role modeling makes designing, learning, and using object-oriented frameworks easier than possible with traditional class-based approaches, because role modeling for framework design reduces class complexity and object collaboration complexity, and improves clarity of requirements put on use-clients. The dissertation extends class-based modeling with role modeling concepts and introduces frameworks as explicit design and implementation artifacts with well-defined boundaries. The dissertation's claims are validated with the help of three case studies that show how role modeling for framework design works in practice.
