Jackal: a Java-based Tool for Agent Development

, , , , , , , and

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 shop floor information flow. This paper describes Jackal at a surface and design level and presents an example of its use in agent construction.
