This paper presents the design of RTAppia, a framework for the development and implementation of configurable real-time protocol stacks. The goal of RTAppia is to allow the construction of specialized protocols through the composition of pre-defined micro-protocols. RTAppia attempts to balance the flexibility and efficiency of micro-protocols with the predictability requirements of real-time applications.
