Abstract : This thesis investigates how the Extensible Markup Language (XML) can be used to describe application-specific networking protocols for use in the NPSNET-V Virtual Environment. Specifically, it describes design of the NPS Dynamic-Behavior-Protocol (DBP) protocols, which are multicast / unicast capable and can be added at runtime to the distributed operating environment. With XML- described packet payloads for these protocols, supporting configuration documents can concisely and clearly describe different variations of these protocols and can also enable switching between them at runtime.
