FDDA - Framework for the Demonstration of Distributed Algorithms

FDDA is a tool that you can use to demonstrate how a distributed algorithm works. It's called a framework because you have to program the algorithm that you'd like to demonstrate. You can use it e.g. for teaching classes or, on the other side, to learn for yourself how an algorithm should be programmed.

When you're about to demonstrate an algorithm, in most cases you'll have to perform three steps:

You can download FDDA for Windows and Unix/Linux (it needs Java 1.4). You may look at a screenshot of the program, first, if you like. Sources and some examples are included, since it's free software. In fact, if you have another algorithm to demonstrate, it would be great if you sent it to me, and I'll include it with the examples.

There are some help pages which should document the main features of FDDA and provide guidance with the programming. I've also compiled a short list of (probably) frequently asked questions. The API documentation may help, too.

But if you've got another question, or a suggestion, or you've found a bug, don't hesitate to write a mail. Till then, have fun with distributed algorithms!
