About this book
This book introduces major agent platforms, frameworks, systems, tools, 
and applications. Each system is described by their developers in 
sufficient detail so that the reader can get a good understanding of the 
architecture, functionality, and application areas of the system. All 
systems are running systems. One main focus of the book lies on agent 
platforms and toolkits. They form the basis for the development of 
agent-based systems, thus, are a convenient starting point for everybody 
who wants to apply agent technology. Another focus lies on agent-based 
applications. These systems prove that agent technology is mature enough 
to permit the development of sophisticated applications, like electronic 
marketplaces, environments for computer-supported cooperative work, or 
transportation systems.

Written for:
Researchers, system developers, students working in agent-related 
projects as well as decision-makers interested in the current 
state-of-the-art of running agent-related systems
