Abstract

Multi-agent systems are attractive means for developing complex software systems. However, multi-agent systems themselves tend to be complex, and certain difficulties exist in developing them. One of the difficulties is the gap between design and implementation especially for interaction protocols. In this paper, we propose a new interaction protocol description language called IOM/T. Inter-action protocols described using IOM/T have clear correspondence with AUML sequence diagrams and the description can be consolidated into a single unit of IOM/T code. Then, we show how the process of implementing Java-based agent-platform code from AUML design can be carried out, and how IOM/T effectively bridges the gap between design and implementation.
