DIET Agents, Version 0.97 released

Mon, 14 Mar 2005 17:09:10 -0000

DIET Agents is lightweight, scalable and robust multi-agent platform in Java that is suitable for rapid prototyping of P2P applications and/or adaptive, distributed applications that use bottom-up, nature-inspired techniques.

Version 0.97 includes relatively small changes, but ones that developers should find useful. The address parsing functionality in the core layer is now available through the AddressParser interface. In the ARC layer, the newly added MirrorFactory interface makes it much easier for agents to initiate remote communication. The "mirrorchat" and "running" sample application have both been updated to demonstrate this new functionality.

Version 0.97 of the DIET Agents platform is available for download at
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=85876&package_id=89045&release_id=312656.

DIET Agents, Version 0.96 released

Thu, 23 Dec 2004 19:32:28 -0000

DIET Agents is lightweight, scalable and robust multi-agent platform in Java that is suitable for rapid prototyping of P2P applications and/or adaptive, distributed applications that use bottom-up, nature-inspired techniques.

Version 0.96 includes many improvements to the Application Reusable Components. A new sample application has been added, and in the core layer the visualisation models have been fully separated from their implementation.

Most changes have taken place in the ARC layer. Amongst others, the SerialJobManager has been made more general by supporting different execution modes: reset on start-up, loop on completion and single job execution. This new functionality is demonstrated in the new "job" sample application, which also demonstrates newly added jobs such as RepeatJob, RepeatLimiterJob, DelegatingDelayJob and TerminatingDelayJob. Jobs now also perform better clean-up on closedown, and the SubScheduler and EventManagerContainer classes have been added to facilitate this. See the release notes for details and info about other improvements. There have been many.

Version 0.96 of the DIET Agents platform is available for download at
https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=85876&package_id=89045&release_id=292118.

DIET Agents, Version 0.95 released

Mon, 01 Nov 2004 17:46:55 -0000

DIET Agents is lightweight, scalable and robust multi-agent platform in Java that is suitable for rapid prototyping of P2P applications. Version 0.95 provides support for agent persistence, the ability to use SSL sockets, ability to control groups of agents, several minor bug fixes and other improvements.

In the core layer, changes were made that enable serialisation of agents while they are running. Together with the newly added ability to pause agents by locking them, this provides basic support for agent persistence. In the ARC layer, a package was added that supports visiting of agents which enables convenient external control of a group of agents. This can for instance be used in order to save agents to file, as demonstrated by the new "persistent sorting" demo application. Various minor bugs were fixed in the remote communication functionality provided by the ARC layer. See the release notes for details and other improvements.

Version 0.95 of the DIET Agents platform is available for download at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=85876&package_id=89045&release_id=279471.

DIET Agents, Version 0.94 released

Tue, 29 Jun 2004 14:20:38 -0000

DIET Agents is lightweight, scalable and robust multi-agent platform in Java that is suitable for rapid prototyping of P2P applications. Version 0.94 includes much improved support for remote communication support, various new sample application that demonstrate this new functionality, many other improvements and several minor bug fixes.

In the ARC layer, there is now a robust and efficient implementation of "Mirror" agents, which provide transparant remote communication. Furthermore, "message channels" have been added as another way of remote communication. A newly added chat sample application demonstrates how to use both remote communication schemes and what their differences are. In the core layer, the use of sockets has been generalised, and I/O errors can now be observed using the newly added SocketErrorListener interface. The release includes many other improvements and several bug fixes. See the release notes for details and other improvements.

Version 0.94 of the DIET Agents platform is available for download at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=85876&package_id=89045&release_id=249510

DIET Agents, Version 0.93 (Java 1.1 compatible) released

Thu, 06 May 2004 16:28:28 -0000

DIET Agents is lightweight, scalable and robust multi-agent platform in Java that is suitable for rapid prototyping of P2P applications. There is now a Java 1.1 compatible version available of the platform.

This version of DIET Agents for Java 1.1 is derived from Version 0.93 of the main DIET Agents platform. It is therefore also named Version 0.93. It has been changed to make it compatible with Java 1.1. See the release notes for details.

The first Java 1.1 compatible version of the DIET Agents platform is available for download at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=85876&package_id=117444&release_id=236368

DIET Agents, Version 0.93 released

Thu, 08 Jan 2004 12:34:33 -0000

DIET Agents is lightweight, scalable and robust multi-agent platform in Java that is suitable for rapid prototyping of P2P applications. Version 0.93 includes improved visualisation support, and other improvements and minor bug fixes.

In the core layer, there are now "Model" interfaces for agents, connections, environments and worlds. These can be used by visualisation tools. These model interfaces are for instance useful for filtering events when for efficiency you only want to view part of a running system. In the ARC layer, the InterdependentJobManager has been added, which can be used to let dependent jobs finish at the same time. Other improvements and bug fixes have been made as well. See the release notes for details.

Version 0.93 of the DIET Agents platform is available for download at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=85876&package_id=89045&release_id=208466
