ARS 2.5 is an agent platform developed by living systems AG. The development of this Java [1] based agent server and the living agents – the agents running on this platform - began in 1997. The system has been successfully displayed and utilised in research projects such as AMTRAS [2] for the German Stock Exchange (OTC trading) or ENTRAS [3] (B2B energy trading) and business projects for, AsiaOne and NetBid, to mention just a few. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the LARS 2.5 platform, and to take a closer look at the living agents. Finally, there is a brief introduction to the living agents explaining the benefits of LARS 2.5 usage in business applications.
