This is the user manual of the Frank!Framework, an open-source platform to quickly build enterprise applications. To have an enterprise application, or as we say a Frank, you have to deploy the Frank!Framework in combination with XML configuration files. This manual explains to Frank developers how to develop Frank configs (chapters Getting Started and Advanced Development). Operators or site owners can read chapter Operator manual about monitoring and managing a Frank. System administrators can learn how to deploy a Frank on their infrastructure (chapter Administrator Manual). There is also material about Testing Frank Configurations.

The Java source code of the Frank!Framework can be found at You can also find release notes here, see See also for more information.
