Package jade.proto Description

This package contains role behaviours for FIPA standard protocols. For every interaction protocol mandated by FIPA specifications, two roles can be played by an agent:
  1. Initiator role: the agent contacts one or more other agents to start up a new conversation, evolving according a specific interaction protocol.
  2. Responder role: in response to a message received from some other agent, the agent carries on a new conversation following a specific interaction protocol.
JADE provides a Behaviour object for each one of these two protocol roles; these behaviours often are abstract classes that application programmers must extend in order to provide application specific code to handle the various protocol steps.

These are the official JADE API. For these API backward compatibility is guaranteed accross JADE versions
