In this paper we briefly describe our work accomplished for the Eureka ECMA PCTE project. Our task was to define an object-oriented extension to the well-known and internationally standardized Portable Common Tool Environment (PCTE) [3]. The PCTE types are extended to be associated with methods. High-level types are introduced and their mappings to the PCTE data model are discussed.
