• A multi-level approach and infrastructure for agent-oriented software development 

    Nowostawski, Mariusz; Bush, Geoff; Purvis, Martin; Cranefield, Stephen
    An architecture, and the accompanying infrastructural support, for agent-based software developement is described which supports the use of agent-oriented ideas at multiple levels of abstraction. At the lowest level are ...
  • The NZDIS project: An agent-based distributed information systems architecture 

    Purvis, Martin; Cranefield, Stephen; Bush, Geoff; Carter, Dan; McKinlay, Bryce; Nowostawski, Mariusz; Ward, Roy
    This paper describes an architecture for building distributed information systems from existing information resources, based on distributed object and software agent technologies. This architecture is being developed as ...
  • Platforms for agent-oriented software 

    Nowostawski, Mariusz; Bush, Geoff; Purvis, Martin; Cranefield, Stephen
    The use of modelling abstractions to map from items in the real-world to objects in the computational domain is useful both for the effective implementation of abstract problem solutions and for the management of software ...
  • The Styx agent methodology 

    Bush, Geoff; Cranefield, Stephen; Purvis, Martin
    Agent-oriented software engineering is a promising new approach to software engineering that uses the notion of an agent as the primary entity of abstraction. The development of methodologies for agent-oriented software ...
