Developing organised multiagent systems using the MOISE+ model: programming issues at the system and agent levels

International Journal of Agent-Oriented Software Engineering (IJAOSE), Vol. 1, No. 3/4, 2007

Abstract: Multiagent Systems (MASs) have evolved towards the specification of global constraints that heterogeneous and autonomous agents are supposed to follow when concerning open systems. A subset of these constraints is known as the MAS organisation. This article describes a set of computational tools that supports the development and the programming of such systems. At the system level, a middleware is provided which ensures that all agents will follow the organisational constraints. At the agent level, the AgentSpeak language is extended, using Jason features, so that the agents can perceive and act upon the organisation to which they belong.
