Ahh! Thanks, im already using the mindswap one, for composition, 
execution and monitoring, and am on the mailing list, I thought maybe 
CMU were developing a different one, since they list it on the tools 
section of their site, but with no link. On 
http://www.daml.ri.cmu.edu/tools/details.html, it is shown in the 
diagram, as a CMU project. So perhaps they do have their own. 
Interestingly its contained within a Jar file, contained in their 
matchmaker client, but not so useful without javadocs.

Anyway thanks,
