The European OPTICON Networks 3.6 and 9.2 in collaboration with the Virtual Observatory, during the last years have produced a detailed documentation designing the requirements and the architecture of a future scalable and interoperable desktop framework for the astronomical software (FASE). A first reference implementation of FASE framework has been developed at INAF-IASF Milano and applied to different projects we are involved in: a) the simulation software developed to study the performance of EUCLID NISP instrument; b) the LBT LUCIFER instrument reduction pipeline used by the Italian community. An application involving graphical capabilities is also being developed exploiting FASE facilities. We show how the main architectural concepts of FASE framework have been successfully applied to the software mentioned above, providing easy to use and install interoperable software, equipped with distributed and scalable capabilities.
