Since its inception in the mid 1990s, Agent Factory has gone through a metamorphosis process, whereby several new extensions, revisions, and enhancements have been made. This chapter provides a discussion of the incremental developments in Agent Factory and provides motivations as to why such changes were necessary. Agent Factory distinguishes itself from other intentional agent platforms in several ways. It provides a practical and efficient approach to the development of intentional agent-oriented applications. This is combined with a methodology, integrated development environment support, and a suite of tools that aid the agent fabrication process. A detailed comparison to related work is provided. We include a tutorial on how to use the framework.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Springer-Verlag||Copyright (published version):||Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2009||Subject LCSH:||Intelligent agents (Computer software)
