Extending the BAST Framework

Basing the BAST framework on the Strategy pattern has the advantage to make it easily extensible. To illustrate this, we now present how we built DTMObject, a protocol class supporting the Dynamic Terminating Multicast (DTM) protocol [11] from existing contexts and strategies. The DTM protocol can be understood as a common denominator of many reliable distributed algorithms [12].
