Abstract

The adoption of a powerful and expressive coordination model represents a key-point for the effective design and development of Internet applications. In this paper, we present the TuCSoN coordination model for Internet applications based on network-aware and mobile agents, and show how the adoption of TuCSoN can positively benefit the design and development of such applications, firstly in general terms, then via a TuCSoN-coordinated sample application. This is achieved by providing for an Internet interaction space made up of a multiplicity of independently programmable communication abstractions, called tuple centres, whose behaviour can be defined so as to embody the laws of coordination.

Keywords: coordination, Internet applications, mobile agents, programmable tuple spaces
