We present a UML profile for an agent-oriented modeling approach called Agent-Object-Relationship (AOR) modeling, where an entity is either an agent, an event, an action, a claim, a commitment, or an ordinary object, and where special relationships between agents and events, actions, claims and commitments supplement the fundamental association, aggregation/composition and generalization relationships of UML class models.


Agent Type Ordinary Object Agent Class Reaction Rule Institutional Agent
