This paper presents the overall architecture of the VADOR application framework. The purpose of the VADOR framework is to enable the seamless integration of commercial and in-house analysis applications in a heterogeneous, distributed computing environment, and to allow the deployment of automatic design optimization algorithms based on the framework. A multi-tiered client-server architecture has been devised, which comprises a client GUI for interactive data definition and execution launching, separate data and execution servers, and autonomous remotely executable application wrappers.
