By Onn Shehory, Arnon Sturm

With this e-book, Onn Shehory and Arnon Sturm, including extra participants, introduce the reader to varied elements of agent-oriented software program engineering (AOSE). they supply a particular number of cutting-edge findings, which mixes study from info platforms, synthetic intelligence, dispensed platforms and software program engineering and covers crucial improvement elements of agent-based systems.

The e-book chapters are prepared into 5 components. the 1st half introduces the AOSE area quite often, together with advent to brokers and the peculiarities of software program engineering for constructing MAS. the second one half describes common facets of AOSE, like architectural versions, layout styles and communique. subsequent, half 3 discusses AOSE methodologies and linked learn instructions and elaborates on Prometheus, O-MaSE and INGENIAS. half 4 then addresses agent-oriented programming languages. ultimately, the 5th half provides experiences concerning the implementation of brokers and multi-agent systems.

The booklet not just presents a accomplished evaluate of layout techniques for specifying agent-based platforms, but additionally covers implementation facets reminiscent of verbal exchange, criteria and instruments and environments for constructing agent-based platforms. it's hence of curiosity to researchers, practitioners and scholars who're drawn to exploring the agent paradigm for constructing software program systems.

Sample text

The question driving this research activity has been to gain information and insights as to the extent to which this is true or not. We wish to study the application-oriented impact our research area has reached today. There are some studies investigating agent applications, but we did not find any up-to-date work on the application impact of MAS&T, that is, the force of impression in the sense of being routinely and productively used in industrial, commercial, or public contexts. An obvious starting point for related work are the AgentLink case studies [4, 6].

This evolution includes various research directions, such as protocols, dialogs, and conversation mechanisms. The area of agent-oriented methodologies and programming languages received major attention in the early days of the AOSE field. In recent years, the pace of progress was much slower. This may suggest that there is a need to further explore this area. The same holds for the area of frameworks and architectures: in early AOSE times many frameworks, platforms, and architectures were devised; later on many of these became obsolete; nowadays only a few are active.
