Overlay Weaver - An Overlay Construction Toolkit About ----- Overlay Weaver is an overlay construction toolkit, which supports overlay algorithm designers in addition to application developers. For application developers, the toolkit provides a common API for higher-level services such as distributed hash table (DHT) and multicast. Applications relying on the common API depend no specific transport protocol, database implementation and routing algorithm. The toolkit provides multiple routing algorithms, Chord, Kademlia, Koorde, Pastry, Tapestry and FRT-Chord. These algorithms could be implemented only in hundreds lines of code because of routing layer decomposition. Routing layer under the higher-level services has been decomposed into multiple components, routing driver, routing algorithm and messaging service. The decomposition also facilitates implementation of a new algorithm. A newly implemented algorithm can be tested, evaluated and compared on emulator, which can host hundreds of thousands of virtual nodes. It enables large-scale emulation and fair comparison between algorithms.
