An Object Oriented Framework for the Hadronic Monte Carlo

We advocate the development of an object-oriented framework for the
hadronic MC event generators. The MC user and developer
requirements are discussed as well as the model commonalities.
The development of a framework is in favour to take into account model
commonalities since common means stable and can be developed only at once.
Such framework can provide different possibilities to have user session
more convenient and productive, e.g. easy access of any model parameter,
runtime substitution of model components, customized output, which offers
neither full information about history of generated event or specific
information about reaction final states etc. Such framework can indeed
increase the productivity of a model developer, particularly, due to
formalization of the model component structure and model component
collaborations. It opens a way to organize a library of the hadronic model
components, which can be considered as the pool of hadronic model
building blocks. Basic features, code structure and working examples
of the first framework version, which has been built as the starting
point, is shortly explained.
