A Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) tool is software that can be used to develop several applications that
require cased-based reasoning methodology. CBR shells are kind of application generators with graphical user
interface. They can be used by non-programmer users but the extension or integration of new components in
these tools is not possible. In this paper we analyzed three CBR object-oriented framework development
environments CBR*Tools, CAT-CBR, and JColibri. These frameworks work as open software development
environment and facilitate the reuse of their design as well as implementations.
