The Extendable Mobile Agent Architecture (EMAA) is a new agent architecture specification aids in the development of an agent system. The architecture’s component design has layers of abstraction, providing a generic system. EMAA provides a framework for autonomous asynchronous mobile software agents to migrate among computing nodes in a network and exploit the resources at those nodes. A single implementation of EMAA can provide a foundation for several different agent applications.
