Title:
From Peer to Service - Object-Oriented Protocol Refinement in Kannel 
Abstract:
The refinement of communication in protocol engineering is studied by analyzing the relation between a peer-to-peer communication scheme and its service-level counterpart, a characteristic that is well-known in practice but rarely studied in detail. It is shown how an abstract protocol can be developed towards a concrete implementation by gradually refining the abstract messages and the involved state machines, moving systematically from layer to layer over the subject application. The character...    »
