Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present the main characteristics of ADF, an open source agent developing platform with a focus on agent collaboration. The basic architecture of the platform is investigated, and a reference implementation – based on Java 2 Enterprise Edition – is presented. Two short case studies (a reverse auction system and meeting scheduding multi-agent system), that use current semantic Web technologies (such as RDF and OWL), illustrate the main features of the framework.
