Abstract: Jackal is a Java-based tool for communicating with the KQML agent communication language. Some features that make it extremely valuable to agent development are its conversation management facilities, flexible, blackboard style interface and ease of integration. Jackal has been developed in support of an investigation of the use of agents in enterprisewide integration of planning and execution for manufacturing.
