By Xinjun Mao, Eric Yu (auth.), James Odell, Paolo Giorgini, Jörg P. Müller (eds.)

The explosive progress of program parts equivalent to digital trade, ent- prise source making plans and cellular computing has profoundly and irreversibly replaced our perspectives on software program structures. these days, software program is to be according to open architectures that always switch and evolve to deal with new parts and meet new specifications. software program should also function on di?- ent systems, with no recompilation, and with minimum assumptions approximately its working setting and its clients. additionally, software program needs to be strong and ¨ self reliant, able to serving a naive consumer with not less than overhead and interference. Agent recommendations carry nice promise for responding to the hot realities of software program structures. They o?er higher-level abstractions and mechanisms which handle matters akin to wisdom illustration and reasoning, conversation, coordination, cooperation between heterogeneous and independent events, p- ception, commitments, targets, ideals, and intentions, all of which want conceptual modelling. at the one hand, the concrete implementation of those innovations may end up in complex functionalities, e.g., in inference-based question answering, tra- motion keep an eye on, adaptive work?ows, brokering and integration of disparate inf- mation resources, and automatic verbal exchange strategies. however, their wealthy representational services let extra trustworthy and ?exible remedies of complicated organizational methods, resulting in extra e?ective specifications an- ysis and architectural/detailed design.

Example text

Plan is a specialized UML activity used to model either predefined plans or fragments of behavior from which plans can be composed. g. means-ends, (de)composition, dependency, correlation, commitment, contribution, etc. 6 Contexts AML offers the means to logically structure models according to situations that can occur during a system’s lifetime and to model elements involved in handling those situations. For this reason AML provides a modeling element called context, which is a specialized UML package used to contain a part of the model relevant for a particular situation.

This InteractionOperator describes the set of traces that are invalid. Representing Agent Interaction Protocols with Agent UML 21 Critical Region. The InteractionOperator Critical Region describes a region on which it is not possible to interleave the set of traces within the Critical region with other messages outside the Critical Region. It corresponds to the critical section in distributed systems. Ignore/Consider. The InteractionOperator Ignore describes the set of traces that can occur during the communication but has to be considered as insignificant and has to be treated like that.

Option. This InteractionOperator contains a single trace. Two situations are possible: if the guard associated to the trace is satisfied, then the trace is executed else nothing happens. This InteractionOperator is a particular case of the InteractionOperator Alternative. Break. The InteractionOperator Break represents a breaking scenario that stops the current trace execution and executes the trace present in the CombinedFragment. The broken current execution will not be resumed. Parallel. The InteractionOperator Parallel describes that several traces can be executed concurrently.
