Unifying JIAC Agent Development with AWE


In this paper we describe the Agent World Editor, a tool for designing multi-agent systems and generating executable agent code. The tool also uni es the handling of di erent agent frameworks through an abstract agent model and an extensible transformation infrastructure. Currently, the tool supports three di erent agent frameworks of the JIAC family, and we feel con dent that the approach holds for other frameworks as well as for the generation of multi-agent systems on heterogenous platforms.
