Peer-to-peer systems like Napster, Gnutella and Kazaa have recently become popular for sharing information. In this paper, we show how to design peer-to-peer systems within the action systems framework by combining UML diagrams. We present our approach via a case study of stepwise development of a Gnutella-like peer-to-peer system.
