This paper presents an approach that utilizes object technology and the UML notation for the development of communication protocols. Object technology has been widely adopted in many application domains and the Unified Modeling Language (UML) has become the new industry standard for modeling software-intensive systems. UML is currently used for modeling of just about any type of applications, running on any type and combination of hardware, operating system, programming language and network. However,protocol design is still based on traditional methodologies.
Successful design of real-time embedded systems relies heavily on the successful satisfaction of their non-functional requirements. Model-driven engineering is a promising approach for coping with the design complexity of embedded systems. However, when it comes to modeling non-functional requirements and covering specific aspects of different domains and types of embedded systems, general modeling languages for real-time embedded systems may not be able to cover all of these aspects.
