Dummy Agent


DummyAgent is a simple yet very useful tool for inspecting message exchanges among JADE agents.

Starting the Dummy Agent

An Dummy Agent is  is a JADE agent itself and, therefore, must be launched within a JADE container.
There are two ways to launch it:

  1. from the Tools menubar of the JADE GUI
  2. with the following command: java jade.Boot da:jade.tools.DummyAgent.DummyAgent

The agent allows to send ACL messages to agents, receive and inspect messages from agents, read and save messages from/to file.
