Version 0.97 of the DIET Agents software has just been released. It is
available for download from SourceForge.net at
Version 0.97 includes relatively small changes, but ones that developers
should find useful. In fact, most changes have been made in response to
comments by a developer.
In the core layer, two new interfaces have been added: AgentCreator and
AddressParser. Both interfaces make capabilities that are provided by
the core more re-usable. In the ARC layer, a MirrorFactory interface and
BasicMirrorFactory implementation have been added. These provide a
convenient way for agents to initiate remote communication, as they do
not have to set-up and create the Mirror agents directly. The
"mirrorchat" and "running" sample application have both been updated to
use this new functionality.
