FIPA-OS is a component-based toolkit enabling rapid development of FIPA compliant agents. FIPA-OS supports the majority of the FIPA Experimental specifications and is being continuously improved as a managed Open Source community project.


FIPA-OS is an open source Java based agent platform developed by Nortel Networks and it can be obtained from free of charge. Agents are programmed in Java without any additional development support. There is a support for tasks and skills. It is also possible to use JESS™ rule engine for agent programming. Multiple White and Yellow pages services are supported. The platform is fully FIPA compliant and messaging is based on FIPA ACL. There is a support for multiple message transfer protocols. There exists also MicroFIPA-OS that is a scaled down version with support for HTTP protocol only. Ontology is supported. Mobility is not. The platform has a low scalability and communication speed. FIPA-OS is a pioneering FIPA compliant agent platform. Nevertheless, there is no evident progress over couple of past years (the latest version 2.2.0 is created in 2003).
