Towards an abstract architecture of Agent Management
Draft, edited by Bernard Burg
The first objective of this workplan is to provide a feedback to the Abstract Architecture Technical Committee, in the form of an input paper, so as to allow the abstraction of the Agent Management Specifications, by using the profiles and components of the Agent Management specification.
The second objective is to take advantage of the same input paper in the Agent Configuration Management workplan.
Input paper to TC B and TC A.
Provide a unified Agent Management interface to ACL.
An input for the Abstract Architecture specification.
· Before 3 April 00
· Position the TC A / B specifications
· Analysis of documents and suggestions to TC A
· Redaction of an input paper to TC A.
This work aims to provide convergent in the FIPA specifications and to introduce ACL based management into the Abstract Architecture. This workplan will go dormant in April 2000, and provides input papers for the Abstract Architecture as well as for the Agent configuration Management.
The following dependencies have been identified (so far):
1. FIPA architecture specification
2. Agent Configuration Management Workplan
