XML based Safe and Scalable Multi-Agent Development Framework
In this paper we describe our efforts to design and
implement an agent development framework that has the potential to
scale to the size of any underlying network suitable for various ECommerce
activities. The main novelty in our framework is it-s
capability to allow the development of sophisticated, secured agents
which are simple enough to be practical.
We have adopted FIPA agent platform reference Model as
backbone for implementation along with XML for agent
Communication and Java Cryptographic Extension and architecture
to realize the security of communication information between agents.
The advantage of our architecture is its support of agents
development in different languages and Communicating with each
other using a more open standard i.e. XML
