OverviewRAPID (Resource Allocation Protocol for Intentional DTN) is a routing algorithm for disruption tolerant networks. We have implemented RAPID for the Delay Tolerant Networking Research Group's DTN Reference Implementation. RAPID was developed and tested with DTN 2.5. Since the XML schema for DTN 2.6 is essentially unchanged from DTN 2.5, RAPID should also work with DTN 2.6 (and simple testing has been successful).
RAPID for DTN2 is:
- An external DTN2 router that makes use of DTN2's XML-based External Router Interface.
- Open Source, released under the Apache License, Version 2.0.
- Implemented in Java.
- Supports Apache log4j and a simple console-based logger. Additional loggers can be written and configured to work with RAPID.
- Exports an interface to allow the router framework to use a user-supplied routing class rather than RAPID.
- Provides a plug-in interface for adding a user-defined, link-aware class.
SoftwareThe most recent version of RAPID is 0.9.4 (updated November 20, 2008).
