We present the design and implementation of a reliable multipeer protocol (RMPP). This protocol is suitable for applications in the area of distributed virtual environments. RMPP is written in Java because this language has many interesting features for DVE-builders. Motivation, protocol classification, design goals and the error recovery algorithm are discussed. Furthermore, some implementation issues are listed. This paper concludes by presenting two possible applications of the RMPP.
