Raddle is a language for designing large, distributed systems. Raddle includes several high-level design constructs, such as the N-party interaction, non-deterministic choice, and system modularity structures. These constructs have proven useful in projects we have undertaken with MCC Shareholders. This paper describes the Vanna project, in which the goal is to build preprocessors to various programming languages that allow the expression of Raddle-like designs in a compilable language. Our first preprocessor will be based on Ada.
