What’s the difference between a library and a framework?
Do you have an answer?

In one of the latest meet of the JUG Torino I heared a nice aswer from Simon:

Libraries are a software called by you; the framework is that software that calls you.

Neat!

Also we can say that you write code around several libraries, and you write code inside a framework.

The application code is just the glue :-)

See also “framework” definitions on c2 and wikipedia. What’s your definition?
