There is considerable interest today in designing open systems that permit tools to be moved freely among various environments on different hardware platforms. To develop such systems, terms such as open systems, features for open systems such as interoperability, and integration must all be precisely defined. We present a model that is an extension of a servicebased reference model for development environments that can be used to formally define these and other related concepts.
