Due to the diverse communication requirements of today's distributed applications, our work has led us in the direction of dynamically configurable protocol systems. This paper motivates the design of a framework for such systems. We discuss the initial study that drove the design of our framework, and describe the framework and the associated interfaces. Finally, we present the results from an experiment involving an adaptable application using a variable reliability protocol.
