Abstract

Previous modular protocol design and implementation allow a flexible configuration and reconfiguration of protocol layers or full protocol stacks. However, in our days, software engineering technologies introduce new methods for designing and specifying modular software. Such a technology is the component-based software technology. Using those techniques, a software system could be modular. This paper proposed a reconfigurable protocol design and specification approach as well as a protocol reconfiguration management/runtime model based on protocol components that represent distinct protocol functions, which in previous works have been designed and specified as modules. The following content could be considered as a suggestion for a UML profile for protocol components and protocol reconfiguration.
