This paper is devoted to the technology of wrappers for legacy data systems reuse. Their characteristics are outlined and a generic wrapper architecture is defined. This architecture is intended to be instanciated for specific legacy data models and systems. A general methodology is proposed to define the architecture components. The methodology is supported by an operational CASE-tool that helps developers to generate wrappers.
