Abstract

This paper presents a task-oriented compositional mobile agent architecture named AgentBee. In this architecture, the mobile agent is in fact a task component. Each task component is recursively formed from sub-task components together with information defining the relationships among sub-task components and supplementing data. At the lowest level of this composition there exist primitive tast components which are conceptually indivisible. Such a task-oriented compositional structure allows easy modifications of mobile agents. Thus, not only can it facilitate knowledge exchange between mobile agents and agencies, but also it can enhance the assembly of new mobile agents from existing components.
