Abstract

Mobile agents are an increasingly popular paradigm and in recent years there has been a proliferation of mobile-agent systems. These systems are, however, largely incompatible with each other. In particular, agents cannot migrate to a host that runs a different mobile-agent system. Prior approaches to interoperability have tried to force agents to use a common API and so far none have succeeded. This goal led to our efforts to develop mechanisms that support dynamic runtime interoperability of mobile-agent systems. This paper describes the \em Grid Mobile-Agent System, which allows agents to migrate to different mobile-agent systems.
