Merging Agents and Services – the JIAC Agent Platform


The JIAC V serviceware framework is a Java based agent framework with its emphasis on industrial requirements such as software standards, security, management, and scalability. It has been developed within industry- and government-funded projects during the last two years. JIAC combines agent technology with a service oriented approach. In this chapter we describe the main features of the framework, with a particular focus on the language Jadl++ and the service matching capabilities of JIAC V.
