This paper describes our experience in developing a suite of semantically reliable protocols. It provides a synthetic but comprehensive overview of our previous work in this area. The paper extends previous work by additionally presenting performance figures obtained with our running implementation. The data obtained experimentally is compared with the analytic and simulation models developed previously. This comparison allows us to extract lessons about the validity of these models. Finally, the paper reports the application of our prototype to distributed multi-player games.
