Abstract

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.

Review

FIPA-OS is an open source Java based agent platform developed by Nortel Networks and it can be obtained from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=3819 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).
