Development and deployment tools are required to effectively support the engineering of multi-agent systems (MAS). In particular, tools are needed to monitor and debug inter-agents aspects, such as interaction protocols, coordination policies and environment constraints.
By assuming interaction as a first-class issue, this paper aims at identifying the main aspects of support tools for an effective agent infrastructure, and takes tuple-based coordination infrastructures as its reference. The role of support tools is discussed in a simple case study: the development and deployment of a well-known agent interaction protocol, the Contract Net.
