Artificial Life - (Windows) Artificial Life -(Mac, Linux)

Artificial Life is a free and open sourced Java framework created to
simulate Life. It is a multi-agent framework where each agent runs its
own Thread.

The agents are split into two different categories: The services and
the processes. The services deliver services to other agents and the
processes execute specific tasks.

The agents are organized in a tree structure called Instance. Within
an Instance, the services and the processes are grouped together thus,
an unlimited number of groups can be defined. Each node of the Instance
tree can have a collection of views used to monitor the activity of the
node or interact with the node. The definition of Java classes used
within the Instance (i.e. processes, services or views) is defined in
the Instance Model.

In order to avoid dead locking, Artificial Life implements a
messaging system, a method invocation mechanism based on the messaging
system and an event mechanism also based on the messaging system.

Three applications are provided with the framework:

  • Instance Server runs Instances and can be remotely managed by using Telnet
  • Instance Manager implements all the functionalities to manage an Instance (i.e. add a service, create a group, etc.)
  • Model Composer implements the functionalities to manage an Instance Model
