A framework for deploying application-specific overlay networking is presented. It enables network protocols for transmitting data and agents to be naturally facilitated as mobile agents. It can also implement the deployment of mobile agent-based protocols within mobile agents. It can customize the deployment of network protocols as well as data transmission by migrating and replacing corresponding mobile agent-based protocols. It provides a self-deployment mechanism for the overlay network. This paper describes the system and its prototype implementation, which uses Java as both the implementation language and the protocol development language.
