    Abstract

    This paper describes the emulation of an unconventional model of computation inspired by the field of optical computing. Our development employed a combination of eXtreme Programming, unit and integration testing with junit, and design patterns. In the final product we implemented a novel content-routing message passing system and have realised the first debugger for an optical computer programming language.
