com)-- A simple yet functional new product designed to solve a common problem, The Aglet Repair Tool, has been developed by Jawara Carrington of Washington, DC.
We provide an overview a few commercial mobile agent systems, such as Telescript, IBM Aglets, and Concordia, and a few academic systems, such as Agent Tcl, TACOMA and Mole.
He has presented his work at leading conferences, published articles in many journals and has co-authored a book on Java aglets.
Like shoestring aglets, telomeres stop chromosomes from unraveling or being eaten away at the ends.
However, according to researchers the following may be considered as the most popular: Telescript, NOMADS, SafeTCL, D'Agents, JavaSeal, Mole, Aglets, Lime, Messenger, JADE, Voyager, TACOMA, Grasshopper, SPRINGS, MAPNET and EtherYatri.
In [6] the authors describe a security model and architecture for Aglets Workbench, a Java-based environment for building mobile agent applications based on these ideas.
Now, agent-oriented mobile computing languages are mainly based on JAVA, for example, AGLETS and ODYSSEY.
Because Java aglets automate many of the processes users must now perform manually, the technology is poised to transform the way many users interact with the Internet.
AgentTcl (developed at Dartmouth Colleage) [Gray 1995], Odyssey (developed by General Magic) [General Magic 1997], and Aglets (developed by IBM) [IBM 1997] are examples of language tools that can be used to develop mobile objects.
Like aglets, the short pieces of plastic that protect the ends of shoelaces, the tips seemed to preserve the integrity of chromosomes.
