Highly adaptable distributed system architectures through combining component-based and agent-based software architectures. Native code management, versioning, and generic component UIs. Facilitated for remote supervision of process control systems.
The nearly omnipresence of the Internet and the steady increase of wireless computing and mobile devices require highly dynamic adaptable distributed system architectures. Building such architectures needs a combination of key concepts from component technology and distributed systems. Mobile agents provide this combination. We use mobile agents as the building blocks of a component-based system for remote supervision and control of both hard- and software in a distributed environment.
Combining concepts of component-based and agent-based software architectures, Development of an agent-based middleware and component framework for creating dynamically adaptable distributed systems, Development of a system for configuring and monitoring distributed automation systems based on the created middleware.
