We describe the microsimulation tool MicCore that was developed in the project "MicMac - bridging the micro-macro gap in population forecasting". Based on a generic continuous-time multistate model with age- and calendar time-specific transition rates the MicCore was implemented as a plug-in to JAMES II, a general modelling and simulation environment. We outline the general software considerations and the specific implementation steps, illustrate the tool by an example, and discuss future extensions of the MicCore.
