By Xinjun Mao, Eric Yu (auth.), James Odell, Paolo Giorgini, Jörg P. Müller (eds.)

The explosive development of program components comparable to digital trade, ent- prise source making plans and cellular computing has profoundly and irreversibly replaced our perspectives on software program structures. these days, software program is to be in response to open architectures that constantly swap and evolve to house new parts and meet new specifications. software program also needs to function on di?- ent structures, with out recompilation, and with minimum assumptions approximately its working atmosphere and its clients. in addition, software program has to be strong and ¨ self reliant, able to serving a naive consumer with no less than overhead and interference. Agent strategies carry nice promise for responding to the hot realities of software program platforms. They o?er higher-level abstractions and mechanisms which deal with matters resembling wisdom illustration and reasoning, communique, coordination, cooperation between heterogeneous and self sufficient events, p- ception, commitments, targets, ideals, and intentions, all of which want conceptual modelling. at the one hand, the concrete implementation of those thoughts can result in complicated functionalities, e.g., in inference-based question answering, tra- motion keep an eye on, adaptive work?ows, brokering and integration of disparate inf- mation resources, and automatic communique strategies. nonetheless, their wealthy representational services permit extra trustworthy and ?exible remedies of complicated organizational tactics, resulting in extra e?ective specifications an- ysis and architectural/detailed design.

Sample text

Second, through dropping the threads, the new version of AUML (version 2) does not reflect concurrency in a sufficient way.

P. Huget and J. Odell Fig. 5. The Agent UML Lifeline Notation Fig. 6. The Agent UML Role Dynamics Notation open arrow head from the current agent instance with the roles it plays to the new situation. The stereotype is written on the directed line as shown on Figure 6. 3 25 Message We add new stereotypes in Agent UML Message in order to take account of roles, communication on the same lifeline and message delay. Agent UML interaction diagrams can address a specific agent instance or a set of agents denoting by their role.

The loop is executed as long as the guard is satisfied. The CombinedFragment notation is a solid-outline rectangle with a pentagon in which the InteractionOperator is written. InteractionOperators are written as follows: alt for alternatives, opt for options, break for break, par for parallel, seq for weak sequencing, strict for strict sequencing, neg for negative, critical for critical region, ignore for ignore, consider for consider, assertion for assertion and loop for loop. Some InteractionOperators have a special notation: (ignore — consider) { {, message}*} and loop [ , ].
