Abstract

JACKTM is an implementation of the Belief/Desire/Intention model of rational agency with extensions to support the design and execution of agent systems where team structures, real-time control, repeatability and linkage with legacy code are critical. This chapter presents the JACKTM multi-agent systems platform. The chapter begins with a discussion of agent programming concepts as they relate to JACKTM, and then presents experiences from the development of two industrial applications that made use of JACKTM (a meteorological alerting environment and a responsive manufacturing set-up).
