Interaction of java and telescript agents

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1222)


This chapter gives an introduction into the two object-oriented programming environments Telescript and Java which both allow to write mobile code. It illustrates some of the more interesting features of these languages as platforms for mobile object systems. Further emphasis lies on the cooperation of agents in these two object-oriented worlds. Moreover, several descriptions of some higher-level agents scenarios are given.
