This paper presents the Living Systems R Technology Suite, LS/TS, a middleware based on autonomous soft- ware agents and autonomic computing principles. Specif- ically, the paper describes the autonomic principles built into LS/TS, and the features that follow from them. These features are described within the context of a general tax- onomy of aut...

... Whitestein LS/TS includes a set of tools, a UMLbased modeling language, and a high-level library for developing agents [28]. It's Java-based and offered in three separate editions. ...
... In so doing, we aim at exploiting some the foundational features of the agent paradigm [15] to seamlessly tackle with a single computational model all those aspects that are put forth by actual SOA models. In this view we here promote the capability to integrate both a task-oriented/process-oriented behaviour – such in the case of agent based workflows [2] or goal oriented business pro- cesses [27] – and a reactive (even-driven) behaviour, such in the case of Event-Driven Architectures (EDA), which are meant to be a main aspect of SOA 2.0 5 . ...
... It was possible to ramp up to the experimental models only the individual software prototypes. A certain exception is the software tool Living Systems R Technology Suite of the Whitestein Technology company [Rimassa et al., 2006], which, however, was not used for mass development of MAS applications because of its labor intensity. Besides, nothing is known about its commercial effectiveness. ...
