FIM-Logo Web Interface POND Logo


To enable access to an agent system through an ordinary browser, a web interface has been created. You can create simple agents, get information on them, as well as terminate them. Also, if an agent implements a certain interface, they can provide their own interface not only through the agent system GUI, but also through the web.

An example agent was programmed for the last part, which accepts a title and some text and allows the user to select one of four images. The agent will then move to another agent system (also specified by the user through an URL) and display there a messagebox with the information provided.

The project was implemented by creating a custom servlet, which communicates with an extended agent system through sockets. Multiple webservers/users can access one agent system at the same time.
