Mobile Agent technology has become more significant in the field of mobile computing. This is due to the rapid advancement of high-performance mobile devices equipped with high-speed wireless telecommunications technology such as GPRS or 3G. Simulation tools are not matured enough to support agent-based applications development process. Modelling and simulation of new systems (e.g. Agent-based systems) is a key tool for reliable design methods. Simulators (e.g. OPNET, MATLAB) allow integration with external resources to increase overall performance. This paper addresses two main issues: development of a Java-based mobile agent behavioural model for wireless information management problem and to show its simulation through the integration of Java with MATLAB for modelling behaviours.
