What is a framework?

A framework is a set structure in which tasks are performed or completed.

Typically, a framework refers to an often layered structure that indicates what kind of programs can or should be built and how they would connect to each other.

Basically, a framework works as a kind of support structure for something to be built on top of.

A software framework is an abstraction in which software that provides generic functionality, can be selectively changed by additional user-written code, this provides application specific software.
