|PDF - Accepted Version|
Interaction Protocols capture the interactions between agents that communicate with each other to achieve specific goals. These protocols specify the conversation of agents in a Multi Agent System. Many attempts have been made to capture the semantics of Agent Interaction Protocols through the deployment of different tools and formalisms. This report describes the execution of Interaction Protocols through the use of Agent Unified Modeling Language (AUML), an extension of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) developed specifically for agent interactions. The report describes generation of synchronization skeletons for any user-defined Interaction Protocol based on a metamodel for AUML and the Eclipse Modeling Framework. Validation of the model and scope of extensibility of the model are also discussed. This mainly provides for developers to quickly input any agent conversation protocol and successfully converts the same into code for further development over an agent platform.
