This paper describes an architecture for building distributed information systems from existing information resources , based on software agent and distributed object technologies. An agent-based architecture is used, with messages exchanged via the FIPA agent communication language (ACL). Novel features of this system include the use of standards from the(More)
This paper describes a multi-agent platform to be used for the integration of environmental information that may be distributed over a network. The system is designed to work as a collection of collaborating agents. Information sources are encapsulated as data source agents that accept messages in an agent communication language. Here we describe how(More)
The use of modelling abstractions to map from items in the real-world to objects in the computational domain is useful both for the effective implementation of abstract problem solutions and for the management of software complexity. This paper discusses the new approach of agent-oriented software engineering (AOSE), which uses the notion of an autonomous(More)
