This software intends to facilitate the development of MAS by supporting the INGENIAS Development Process (IDP). This process was created to help developers to use agent concepts in the context of a system development following engineering practices. As a result, this process proposes a set of deliverables, activities, and guidelines about how these activities could be organized. If you are interested in the IDP, you could review our dedicated web site ( Also, you can consult our published papers [1] [2] The IDP is supported by tools that implement notation and implementation techniques described in the original work of INGENIAS. We name these tools the INGENIAS Development Kit (IDK), and that is what this distribution is giving to you. To know more about the IDK, please, read the following sections [1] Gomez-Sanz, J. and Pavon, J. (2003). Agent oriented software engineering with INGENIAS.
