Fred & JavaFrames
The Original FRED Project (1997-2000)
The Fred methodology and programming environment were originally
developed in a joint research project between University of Tampere
and University of Helsinki. The project was financially
supported by Finnish National Technology Agency (TEKES) and several
industrial partners: Dycom, ICL Data, Major Blue Company, Necsom,
Nokia Telecommunications, Nokia Research Center, Novo Group, Profit,
Stonesoft, Sun Microsystems, Sonera, TietoEnator, and Valmet Automation.
Project members were Kai Koskimies and Jukka Paakki (project management
and supervision), Markku Hakala, Juha Hautamäki, Jyrki Tuomi, Antti
Viljamaa and Jukka Viljamaa.
Fred Experiences (2000)
The project concentrated on gathering real-life experiences of
task-based framework specialization by applying Fred to a framework
developed by Nokia. The project was carried out at Tampere
University of Technology and funded by the National Technology Agency
of Finland (TEKES) and Nokia Networks. Project members were Kai
Koskimies (project manager), Markku Hakala and Juha Hautamäki.
The continuation project of Fred was launched to enhance the
theory on architecture oriented programming as well as to further
develop the Fred tool implementation. As a result, the pattern-based
tool support was developed and integrated to the Eclipse environment.
The project was carried out with the co-operation between Tampere
University of Technology and University of Helsinki.
The project was funded by the National Technology Agency of Finland
(TEKES), Nokia Networks, Necsom, Sensor SC, and SysOpen.
Project members were Kai Koskimies and Jukka Paakki (supervision),
Markku Hakala (project manager), Imed Hammouda, Juha Hautamäki,
Esa Heino, Miko Nieminen, Pekka Savolainen, Antti Viljamaa, and
Jukka Viljamaa. The JavaFrames tool can be downloaded
