Multi-agent system, software engineering, agent-based software development, agent-oriented methodology


Many of the distributed, complex systems developed in the last decade are based on the intelligent agents technology. Moreover, nowadays, the Internet and web based appli-cations offer new opportunities for building efficient multi-agent systems. Thus, there is a need for a specific software engineering, named agent-oriented, that is more appropriate than other existing software engineering such as the object oriented one. The tutorial paper presents the key aspects of agent-based software development, focusing on the most known methodologies such as: Gaia, Tropos, Prometheus, ADELFE, MAS CommonKADS.
