This paper discusses the AgentAssebly architecture and specifically the agent framework platform component of the architecture. An introduction is given to the work covered in the paper and previous work (see [1]) this paper is based upon. Then an in-depth discussion is rendered on the agent framework platform provided by the AgentAssembly architecture. The paper concludes with some remarks on the research presented and future aims of the ongoing research project.
