This paper documents the design of a tool to create protocol adaptors. With the current emphasis in software engineering on using common off the shelf components, there are increasing interface mismatches. In addition to this, there is constant pressure to speed up the development process. And as the prevalence of distributed applications raises we are seeing an increase in the passing of messages among the components of a software system. Wrappers need to be written to deal with these protocol mismatches among different components. The tool documented herein allows developers to more easily create an adaptor component, which takes the place of a wrapper. This tool is meant to be used by developers to speed up the adaptor creation process. Automated checks are also included in the application.
