The Open Agent
ArchitectureTM 1.0 Distribution
Status: Unsupported Partial Release
About this distribution
This distribution is intended for developers who need to
work with OAA 1.0 in order to support some existing system, or reuse
existing agents based on OAA 1. Others should work with OAA 2.x.
Please note that
OAA 1.0 is not thoroughly documented and not well supported.
For those who need to reuse an OAA 1.0 agent, note that it is possible
to use a mix of OAA 1.0 and OAA 2.x agents with the OAA 2.0
This OAA 1.0 distribution is released to the public under a non-exclusive end-user software license agreement.
All users of OAA are strongly encouraged to subscribe to, and
make use of, the oaa-users mailing list. There are no strings
attached; your email address will not be used for any other purpose
than the mailing list. Traffic is relatively light, but many useful
questions get asked and answered on the list.
