The aim of this activity is to define purpose-specific interaction protocols whose need may arise when the description of communications done during the COD (Communication Ontology Description) and SD (Scenario Description) activities does not match any of the existing FIPA protocols.


The designer starts from the scenarios and the ontological description of communications in order to find the need for a new specific interaction protocol. If this is the case, then he can proceed to the definition of a new protocol that is compliant with the interactions described in scenarios and communication semantics.


It is advisable to refer to the FIPA Interaction protocols library in order to see if a satisfying protocol already exists and if not, probably an existing one can be the basis for changes that can successfully solve the specific problem.

Goal

The aim of this activity is to define purpose-specific interaction protocols whose need may arise when the description of communications done during the COD (Communication Ontology Description) and SD (Scenario description) activities does not match any of the existing FIPA protocols.


Input

Non FIPA Protocols identified during COD and SD are detailed in this activity. Output Protocols are classically described using an AUML sequence diagram ??? or similarly as done by FIPA specifications.

Work to be done

The designer starts from scenarios and the ontological description of communications in order to find the need for a new specific interaction protocol. If this is the case, then he can proceed to the definition of a new protocol that is compliant with the interactions described in scenarios and the semantics of the communication.


Methodological Guidelines

It is advisable to refer to the FIPA Interaction protocols library in order to see if a satisfying protocol already exists and if not, probably an existing one can be the basis for changes that can successfully solve the specific problem.
