English abstract:
Complex software systems of today consist of several interacting modules introducing the need of a cohesive architecture. The middleware Java JADE provides this functionality. However, there is a need for additional infrastructure to lower the effort of implementing modular systems. This paper presents the Agent-Based Complex Network Architecture framework (ACONA) that extends the Java JADE multi-agent system by adding a layer, taking away the use-case-based repetitive task of creating a common communication infrastructure, enhanced data storage, and unified function access within the agents. The implementation of a cognitive architecture, which is a highly complex control system in the domain of building automation, provides first proof of concept and benchmarking opportunity.
