We present ASPRO2, a Java observation preparation tool developed and maintained by the Jean-Marie Mariotti Center for Expertise in Interferometry (JMMC). ASPRO2 allows to prepare observations for optical interferometers, in particular for the VLTI and CHARA arrays. It automates the writing of VLTI and CHARA Observing Blocks. ASPRO2 persistent metacode can be used to exchange observation lists between observers or even instruments. Relying on Virtual Observatory techniques, ASPRO2 is interoperable with other applications, in particular those developed at JMMC for optical interferometry.
