Abstract

A Multiagent System (MAS) is a useful approach for complex systems. However, it is difficult to develop a MAS because the current techniques have trouble dealing with interactions, which is one of the most important concepts. Although there are many researches about MAS developments, we believe the concepts are too logical and not easy to use. We analyse the language functionalities for implementing and testing interactions and design a new language for implementing interactions. In this paper, we propose our language, named IOM/T, and show how it works. IOM/T helps us to implement interactions from the design model. Furthermore, it helps us test the implementation with Design by Contract (DbC).
