Hierarchically Structured Mobile Agents and their Migration

  title={Hierarchically Structured Mobile Agents and their Migration},
  author={Ichiro Satoh},
This paper presents a framework for mobile agents. The framework is unique among other mobile agent systems in structuring mobile agents hierarchically. The framework provides the notion of agent hierarchy, in which each mobile agent can be a container of other mobile agents. We construct a prototype implementation of this framework. It is built on the Java language and mobile agents are given as Java objects. The framework helps us to construct a mobile agent application that is large in scale… CONTINUE READING
