    In this article, we discuss the explicit design of interaction mechanisms for developing distributed applications. When interactions between system parts require an explicit design, the concept of an interaction system comes into play. We define criteria that designers can use to decide whether an interaction system requires an explicit design. We also show that designers can apply both middleware-centered and protocol-centered development approaches in designing an application-level interaction system.
