This paper discusses the application of TINA concepts, architectures and related design paradigms in the Mesh project. Mesh adopted TINA as a means to facilitate the design and implementation of a flexible platform for developing and providing interactive multimedia services. This paper reports on the activity in which the TINA specifications have been studied and implementation options for the TINA components have been selected. This paper also discusses the role and position of protocols and objects in this context.
