The FIELD Integration Mechanism
FIELD integrates tools by providing a simple message-passing framework that supports selective broadcast messaging. The center of the framework is the message server that the various tools communicate with. When a tool starts, it finds the message server and sends it a description of the messages it is interested in. As it runs, the tool sends messages to the server. The message server matches each message against the descriptions that were registered by all the tools, and forwards the message to those tools that have expressed interest in it
