Abstract(englisch):
Paose (Petri net-based Agent-Oriented Software Engineering) combines the paradigm of AOSE (Agent-Oriented Software Engineering), with the expressive power of Petri nets - reference netsto be more precise. While AOSE is a powerful approach when itcomes to designing and developing distributed (agent) applications, itdoes not address the problems specific to debugging, monitoring, andtesting of these applications, i.e. no global state of the system and verydynamic operating conditions. To tackle these problems, two tools havebeen developed in the context of Paose, which are presented in thiswork.Firstly, this paper will give a short overview over the interrelated set oftools, which exists already and supports Petri net- based AOSE. The toolsare centered around the Petri net-based multi- agent system developmentand runtime environment Renew/Mulan/Capa. Secondly, Mulan-Viewer and Mulan-Sniffer will be presented in moredetail - two tools to address the issues encountered during debugging, monitoring, and testing agent applications. Both tools are first class members of the aforementioned family. The first tool, Mulan-Viewer, deals with the introspection of agents and agent behaviors, while it alsooffers rudimentary features for controlling the agent-system. The Mulan-Sniffer as the second tool places emphasis on tracing, visualizing, and analyzing communication between all parts of the multi-agent applicationand offers interfaces for more advanced methods of analysis, such as process mining. Both Mulan-Viewer and Mulan-Sniffer are realizedas Renew plugins that can also be extended by other plugins. (Autor)
