The CMS Geant4-based Simulation Framework, Mantis, is a specialization of the COBRA framework, which implements the CMS OO architecture. Mantis, which is the basis for the CMS-specific simulation program OSCAR, provides the infrastructure for the selection, configuration and tuning of all essential simulation elements: geometry construction, sensitive detector and magnetic field management, event generation and Monte Carlo truth, physics, particle propagation and tracking, run and event management, and user monitoring actions. The experimental setup is built by Mantis using the COBRA Detector Description Database, DDD, which allows transparent instantiation of any layout (full or partial CMS simulation, test beam setups etc). Persistency, histogramming and other important services are available using the standard COBRA infrastructure and are transparent to user applications. Authors: M. Stavrianakou, P. Arce, S.
