The Brahms Agent Environment replaces both Brahms Personal Agent and Professional Agent and is a collection of tools for developing models of work practice for the purpose of simulating work practice or for developing agent-based solutions to support the people that are part of a work practice.
The Brahms Agent Environment is intended for those people who want to develop complex models of work practice for simulation and analysis and/or who want to experiment with agent-based systems.
The Brahms Agent Environment now also supports the development of distributed agent-based solutions that support an organization's work practice.
The Brahms Agent Environment offers the following additional capabilities over the previous Brahms Personal Agent:
- Includes a directory service for registering and finding Brahms agents.
- Uses CORBA as the transport layer for communication between remote agents. Agents running within the same agent environment (virtual machine) will communicate using a Brahms native protocol and will not use CORBA.
