TuCSoN4JADE (T4J for short) v. 1.0 was released, and submitted to JADE developer as 3rd-party contribution.

T4J is a Java library enabling JADE agents to exploit TuCSoN coordination services wrapped as an ad-hoc API into a JADE kernel service.

JADE is a FIPA-compliant Java-based agent development framework featuring standard MAS middleware features such as agent mobility, white and yellow pages service, ACL-based message passing, and built-in FIPA protocols. TuCSoN is a Java-based middleware providing software agents with coordination as a service via programmable logic tuple spaces, called tuple centres. By combining TuCSoN and JADE, T4J aims at providing MAS engineers with a full-featured MAS middleware, enabling them to exploit both dimensions of agent-oriented software engineeringindividual, through JADE agents; social, via TuCSoN tuple centres — in a complete and well-balanced way.
