M obile agents provide an innovative concept for creating distributed systems. Being mobile means the ability of a computational entity to move itself from one system to another in the same network. Acting and interacting with compatible objects in the temporary host system expresses the core idea behind mobile agents, that is, bringing the computation to the data rather than the data to the computation. The " Seven Good Reasons for Mobile Agents " [3] appear to be far-reaching: mobile agents… CONTINUE READING
