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:
- from the Tools menubar of the JADE GUI
- 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.
