High level component frameworks for large scale complex applications are being successfully developed and used in different science and engineering areas. Component frameworks provide benefits in their abstraction of complex capabilities such as parallelization or I/O, enable collaborative code development and code reuse, and provide a pathway to new integrated multiphysics simulation environments and large scale computing. This talk will provide an overview of the Cactus Framework focusing on how it is being used by the Einstein Toolkit Consortium to provide a community resource for computational relativistic astrophysics.
