|Title:||Executable specification and prototyping of network protocols using UML and Java|

|Abstract:||Network protocols are often implemented in software and / or hardware, and, it becomes essential to design and test them in an efficient manner. This paper explores a dual phase approach for developing network protocols: in the first phase protocols are modeled using UML (Unified Modeling Language) as the formalism, and, in the second phase, use of executable specification and prototyping of protocols based on Java is supported. The prototyping of a protocol is useful for further investigations such as verification ofprotocol properties, test case generation etc. Once the second phase provides a satisfied result, the developers can go ahead in developing and deploying the protocol in the real environment. Yet another objective in this work is to design executable constructs in Java to specify protocols and prototyping them. The protocols designed using this approach ensures sustenance of the models already developed. Illustration of using executable constructs in Java to specify and prototyping ofprotocols, and comparison with native implementations is presented in this paper. �2009 IEEE.|
