Currently, the development of overlay network systems typically produces two software artifacts: a simulator to model key protocols and a production system for a WAN environment. However, this methodology requires the maintenance of two implementations, as well as adding both development overhead and the potential for errors, through divergence in the different code bases. This paper describes how our message-passing component model, called Kompics, is used to build overlay network systems using a P2P component framework, where the same implementation can be simulated or deployed in a production environment. Kompics enables two different modes of simulation: deterministic simulation for reproducible debugging, and emulation mode for stress-testing systems. We used our P2P component framework to build and evaluate overlay systems, and we show how our model lowers the programming barrier for simulating and deploying overlay network systems.
