Title (EN) VISUALISATION IN A MODULAR SOFTWARE SYSTEM
(FR) VISUALISATION DANS UN SYSTEME LOGICIEL MODULAIRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A community of collaborative software agents works together in a domain to provide functionality such as provision of communications services or control of a chemical process. A system is provided for building such communities of collaborative software agents. Each software agent has data concerning its relationship(s) with other agents of the community. A visualiser is provided for debugging the community which offers several partial views of the communications between and within agents, organised according to the relationships between agents. By using multiple partial views, such as messages between selected agents and job status reports within single agents, the visualiser is capable of particularly effective debugging.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ensemble d'agents logiciels coopératifs qui collaborent dans un domaine pour produire une fonctionnalité telle que des services de communication ou une commande pour un processus chimique. L'invention concerne également un système permettant de construire de tels ensemble d'agents logiciels coopératifs. Chaque agent logiciel comprend des données relatives à sa/ses relation(s) avec les autres agents de l'ensemble. Une unité de visualisation permet de mettre au point l'ensemble, et offre plusieurs représentations partielles de la communication entre les agents et à l'intérieur de ces derniers, ces représentations étant organisés conformément aux relations entre agents. Grâce à l'utilisation de représentations partielles multiples, par exemples de messages entre agents sélectionnés et rapports d'état de travaux dans les agents individuels, l'unité de visualisation permet une mise au point particulièrement efficace.
