Projects / The Tiny Multi Agent Platform

The Tiny Multi Agent Platform

tinyMAS is a multiagent platform that provides base concepts (such as kernel, message, yellow pages, white pages, and transport service) and extended concepts (such as environment, influence, and perception). It aims to provide an easy-to-understand and and easy-to-use platform dedicated for multiagent engineer/research courses. TinyMAS is no longer under development. A large amount of its source code has been merged into the Janus platform.

    Release Notes: This release deprecates the API in favor of the Janus platform.

    •  04 Apr 2009 12:56

      Release Notes: This is the first mavenization of the tinyMAS platform. Several minor bugs were also fixed.

      •  30 Mar 2009 07:41

        Release Notes: The ConcurrentModificationException exception on the list of the agents is prevented. The global performance of the simulator was enhanced: the doPerception() and doDecisionAndAction() functions are called during the same invocation of the live() function. Several Java warnings were fixed.

        •  09 Dec 2008 18:47

          Release Notes: In previous versions, the kernel always uses the localhost as its IP address. It avoids using multiple kernels on a network. This problem is fixed by detecting the first non-loopback IPv4 address.

          •  28 Nov 2008 15:48

            Release Notes: This release does not translate the messages sent by network connections to byte arrays, but uses Java object serialization instead.
