Decaf (Distributed, Environment-Centered Agent Framework) is a toolkit which allows a well-defined software engineering approach to building multi-agent systems. The toolkit provides a stable platform to design, rapidly develop, and execute intelligent agents to achieve solutions in complex software systems. DECAF provides the necessary architectural services of a large-grained intelligent agent: communication, planning, scheduling, execution monitoring, coordination, and eventually learning and self-diagnosis . This is essentially, the internal "operating system" of a software agent, to which application programmers have strictly limited access.
