P907  MESSAGE: Methodology for Engineering Systems of Software Agents

TI2

Recommendations on supporting tools

Issue date: September  2001
Confidentiality: For full publication
Format: 1 volume (27 pages)
Abstract:

The goals of this deliverable are twofold.

On the one hand it presents a number of recommendations a CASE tool should comply with in order to fully support the MESSAGE methodology. These recommendations address both the meta-modelling and the modelling levels.

On the other hand it describes the work carried out within PIR5.3 to customize an existing commercial CASE tool called MetaEdit+ in order to make it support the MESSAGE methodology as much as possible according to the above recommendations considering the limited amount of time and resources available in this task.

A report of what parts of MESSAGE are actually supported, a User Guide to develop MAS using the customized MetaEdit+ and the MESSAGE repository needed to actually exploit the customized MetaEdit+ are therefore included and constitute the bulk of the document.

Applicability:

Software engineering personnel at the EURESCOM shareholder companies who are developing, or considering developing Multi-Agent Systems should read this report.
