Network Processing of Mobile Agents, by Mobile Agents, for Mobile Agents
This paper presents a framework for building network protocols for migrating mobile agents over a network. The framework allows network protocols for agent migration to be naturally implemented within mobile agents and to be constructed in a hierarchy as most data transmission protocols are. These protocols are given as mobile agents and they can transmit other mobile agents to remote hosts as first-class objects. Since they can be dynamically deployed at remote hosts by migrating the agents that carry them, these protocols can dynamically and flexibly customize network processing for agent migration according to the requirements of respective visiting agents and changes in the environments. A prototype implementation was built on a Java-based mobile agent system, and several practical protocols for agent migration were designed and implemented. The framework can make major contributions to mobile agent technology for telecommunication systems.
