This paper presents an agile development methodology for multi-agent systems based on XP and reports on our experiences with it for the implementation of agents that support the clinical information flow. Our case study shows that XP is a very promising approach for agent development, because agents are rather small units that can be implemented, tested and refactored rapidly without risking the overall system?s functionality.
