Task Queues: A General Model for the Implementation of Communications Protocols
Ann Kratzer
Dartmouth PCS-TR86-119

Abstract:

When any computer communications network is built, its communications protocol must always be implemented. The protocol is implementetd on the switching nodes of the network. The node software must respond in real time to events generated external to the switching node. Thus, the software running on a switching node constitutes a concurrent program; this complicates the design, implementation and testing of the switching node software. The task queue model presented in this paper defines a structure for this software that facilitates the design, implementation and testing of communications protocols.
