Towards a Framework for Developing Mobile Agents for Managing Distributed Information Resources

Dale, Jonathan and DeRoure, David C. (1997) Towards a Framework for Developing Mobile Agents for Managing Distributed Information Resources s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


Distributed information management tools allow users to author, disseminate, discover and manage information within large-scale networked environments, such as the Internet. Agent technology provides the flexibility and scalability necessary to develop such distributed information management applications. We present a layered organisation that is shared by the specific applications that we build. Within this organisation we describe an architecture where mobile agents can move across distributed environments, integrate with local resources and other mobile agents, and communicate their results back to the user.
