The goal of this paper is to provide some arguments in favor of the use of agent technology in real word applications. It does so through the, as much as possible, detailed description of a multi-agent system in the context of a real world application in the domain of ambient assisted living. It discusses development issues involving the use of the platform JADE and integrating computational argumentation and web services. It also gives some feedback concerning the experience of engineering such systems, especially when integrated in a more complex system with other components, but also concerning the perception of real users when using the system in an everyday life context.
