This paper proposes a software development tool for the development and testing of end-to-end QoS sensitive frameworks and technologies. The development tool is a modular software system, which allows researchers to assess the performances and functionalities of different QoS frameworks and technologies using an experimental methodology, rather than using simulation environments. We describe and analyze the behavior of the proposed development tool by testing, in a comparative manner, two end-to-end QoS frameworks: On-Demand QoS Path framework (ODP) and Self-Adaptive Bandwidth Reconfiguration QoS framework (SAR).
