By Brian Henderson-Sellers (auth.), Ricardo Choren, Alessandro Garcia, Carlos Lucena, Alexander Romanovsky (eds.)

This ebook offers a coherent and well-balanced survey of modern advances in software program engineering ways to the layout and research of lifelike large-scale multi-agent structures (MAS). The chapters integrated are dedicated to a number of thoughts and strategies used to deal with the complexity of real-world MAS. the facility of agent-based software program engineering is illustrated utilizing examples which are consultant of profitable applications.

The sixteen completely reviewed and revised complete papers are equipped in topical sections on agent methodologies and procedures, specifications engineering and software program architectures, modeling languages, and dependability and coordination. many of the papers have been firstly offered on the third foreign Workshop on software program Engineering for Large-Scale Multi-agent platforms, SELMAS 2004, held in Edinburgh, united kingdom in may possibly 2004 in organization with ICSE 2004. different papers have been invited to accomplish insurance of all suitable aspects.

1 Agent-Oriented Method Engineering In order to build our new design process we adopted (and extended) the method engineering paradigm [12][13][14]. According to this approach, the new SEP (Software Engineering Process) is built by assembling pieces of the process (method fragments) [2][1][3] from a repository of methods. In this way we could obtain the best process for our specific needs. We chose this approach because, in the last years, it proved successful in developing many object-oriented applications, for example information systems [15], and is now collecting a growing interest from the agent community[16][17].

A new branch of Software Engineering, called Method Engineering [1, 2] proposes to create a new methodology starting from existing methodology parts, called method fragments, that a method engineer defines and stores in the method base. When a method engineering wants to design a new methodology, he extracts and assembles the fragments (each one composed of some work to be done, the resulting artifacts and supporting guideline) in order to obtain a methodology that is suitable for his specific needs.
