In this technical report, the authors propose an abstract framework,called ADF (Agent Developing Framework), to be used indesigning and implementation stages of building (mobile) agents within amulti-agent architecture. We also investigate the possibility ofdeveloping, in a generic manner, different components to be integratedinto agent applications. The ADF framework consists of a hierarchy ofclasses (structured as a Java package) and a visual developing tool. Theproposed API offers the core functionalities of an agent-oriented system(e.g., agents, hosts, name service, migration, and messaging).
