  • IBM Aglets Workbench 12/2/99 Who points to it? 20 - About Aglets Software Development Kit: Think of the Internet as a distributed, massively parallel supercomputer that connects information repositories, databases, intelligent agents, and mobile code. Imagine sending your own personalized agents to roam the Internet. They will monitor your favorite Web sites, get you the ticket you couldn't get at the box office, or help you to schedule meetings for your next overseas trip. Sounds like science fiction? Maybe, but at IBM Research we decided to do something about it. Read on and learn about Aglets Software Development Kit from IBM. We are confident that you will be excited about what you discover!

  • MOLE Site 12/2/99 Who points to it? 11 - The Distributed Systems group at the IPVR of the University of Stuttgart started working on Mobile Agents in 1994. In March 1995 a research group for Mobile Agents was established by Prof. Rothermel with the goal of developing the technology, to assess potential uses and to appraise problems and solutions in this area. The project name - Mole - is not an acronym but simply the name of the project mascot.

  • Grasshopper 12/2/99 Who points to it? 12 - Grasshopper, the agent development platform launched by IKV++ in August 1998, enables the user to create a wealth of applications based on agent technology. Grasshopper is completely implemented in Java, a programming language which has become widely known amongst programmers, giving them the opportunity to work with Grasshopper without intensive further training. Companies with an urgent need for true distributed systems can therefore benefit almost immediately from the advantages of Java as well as from Grasshopper's unique suitability for such systems. Grasshopper is also the first mobile agent environment which is compliant to the industry standard supporting agent mobility and management (OMG MASIF). This compliance ensures compatibility with other agent environments or applications based on the same standard thus avoiding costly and time consuming integration procedures.

  • Concordia 12/2/99 Who points to it? 10 - CONCORDIA is a full-featured framework for development and management of network-efficient mobile agent applications for accessing information anytime, anywhere and on any device supporting Java.

  • MAP (A Mobile Agent Platform) 12/2/99 Who points to it? 11 - In this area, the emerging technology of mobile agents aroused considerable interest. Mobile agents are applications that can move through the network for carrying out a given task on behalf of the user. MAP (Mobile Agents Platform) is a software package for the development and the management of mobile agents. The language used both for developing the platform and for carrying out the agents is Java. The platform gives the user all the basic tools needed for creating some applications based on the use of agents. It enables us to create, run, suspend, resume, deactivate, reactivate local agents, to stop their execution, to make them communicate each other and migrate.

  • Hive: a platform for mobile agents 12/8/99 Who points to it? 14 - Hive is a Java software platform for creating distributed applications. Using Hive, programmers can easily create systems that connect and use data from all over the Internet. At its heart, Hive is an environment for distributed agents to live, communicating and moving to fulfill applications.

  • Klaim Project 12/16/99 Who points to it? 9 - Klaim is a formalism that supports a programming paradigm where processes, like data, can be moved fromeone computing environment to another. Klaim naturally supports programming with explicit localities; itconsists of a core Linda with multiple tuple spaces and of a set of operators for building processes.
