Software reusability is a key part of an effort to increase the productivity of software projects, and is important in building a software engineering environment. However, it is not enough for software to be reusable; for maximum effectiveness, the software should support tool integration, and should have a paradigm that developers can apply. This paper describes a reusable tool called FILLIN, a form~oriented user interface tool. FILLIN has been successfully employed in the Software Productivity System environment as a tool integration and reusability aid. It has helped establish a consistent interface across a wide variety of tools. The tool and its supporting paradigm are presented, along with an example, and the form - oriented View of data in a software development environment is discussed. ~ Key Words and Phrases: form, integration, mammachine interface, programming environment, software development paradigm, software reuse.
