Abstract. myCBR and COLIBRI Studio are two well-established open-source frameworks for building case-based reasoning (CBR) applications, though they follow different approaches and support different phases of the CBR application development. Where myCBR supports its users in developing a knowledge model for representing cases, it leaves the software developers alone in developing an application that uses the generated knowledge model. COLIBRI Studio, on the other hand, is focused on the development of CBR applications. As soon as you have a knowledge model it offers templates for a variety of application types and supports in generating source code. This paper explains the strengths and weaknesses of both frameworks regarding the rapid development of CBR applications. It also shows how to use both of them in conjunction.
