Multiagent system, software engineering, agentbased software development, agentoriented methodology


Many of the distributed, complex systems developed in the last decade are based on the intelligent agents technology. Moreover, nowadays, the Internet and web based appli-cations offer new opportunities for building efficient multi-agent systems. Thus, there is a need for a specific software engineering, named agent-oriented, that is more appropriate than other existing software engineering such as the object oriented one. The tutorial paper presents the key aspects of agent-based software development, focusing on the most known methodologies such as: Gaia, Tropos, Prometheus, ADELFE, MAS CommonKADS.
