Integrating agent-oriented methodologies with UML-AT
There are many methodological approaches for Agent-Oriented Software Engineering, each one focusing on some features of multi-agent systems, but leaving others underdefined. For this reason, it would be interesting to have the possibility of applying different methods, according to their suitability to each particular problem domain and system view. Here, a key issue is how to integrate the information resulting from different methods in a common specification. We propose the use of an intermediate language called UML-AT, which would enable bidirectional transformations between models in different languages. These transformations allow representing views of those models in the language of choice at every moment. UMLAT is a UML profile based on the Activity Theory (AT) framework, which includes the concepts to describe societies of actors that are both autonomous and intentional. The translation with UML-AT mappings makes the integration process independent of any given methodology. At...
