This Chapter presents DOMAIN, an integrated software environment for development of parallel programs and its use to distribute RAYVOLUTION, an evolutionary ray tracer. DOMAIN combines different types of tools and services to assist the design and the execution of parallel applications. By previous work on distributing renderer algorithms it has turned out that it is of significant help to have an interactive general purpose support with a graphical user interface, and therefore we have conceived DOMAIN to provide this support.
