Abstract

In this work, we discuss the multi agent system AgentTeam from a software engineering perspective. AgentTeam is a framework for agent-based flexible management of distributed relational data stored in heterogeneous databases. In order to fit the inherently distributed application environment of the network, it is designed in an object-oriented fashion, It consists of domain-dependent system concepts and partially domain-independent software design concepts. The software design concepts are evaluated with respect to heterogeneity, scalability, and re-useability and discussed in detail on the prototype CourseMan.
