    Model integration in agent-oriented development

    Export to Mendeley

    Each current agent-oriented methodology focuses on some aspects of multi-agent systems and may leave others aside. For this reason, a developer may find it useful to apply different specialised methods and tools for each aspect of the system under development. Nevertheless, the integration of different elements into a specification is not trivial. This paper proposes addressing this issue by using mappings between different modelling languages and an intermediate language. The use of this intermediate language called Unified Modelling Language for Activity Theory (UML-AT), reduces the number of required mappings. Being rooted in the Activity Theory (AT) framework, which comes from social sciences, UML-AT supports most of the key agent-related concepts found in literature. The application of this integration approach is illustrated with a case study about the implementation of Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents (FIPA) protocols. The case study involves the use of a software support tool for the translation.

    Description

    Title : Model integration in agent-oriented development
    Author(s) : Ruben Fuentes Fernandez, Jorge J. Gomez Sanz, Juan Pavon
    Abstract : Each current agent-oriented methodology focuses on some aspects of multi-agent systems and may leave others aside. For this reason, a developer may find it useful to apply different specialised methods and tools for each aspect of the system under development. Nevertheless, the integration of different elements into a specification is not trivial. This paper proposes addressing this issue by using mappings between different modelling languages and an intermediate language. The use of this intermediate language called Unified Modelling Language for Activity Theory (UML-AT), reduces the number of required mappings. Being rooted in the Activity Theory (AT) framework, which comes from social sciences, UML-AT supports most of the key agent-related concepts found in literature. The application of this integration approach is illustrated with a case study about the implementation of Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents (FIPA) protocols. The case study involves the use of a software support tool for the translation.
