5 *simpA* is a framework extending the basic Java environment with an agent-oriented abstraction layer for programming complex (concurrent in particular) applications.
6
7 simpA is based on the *A&A* (Agents and Artifacts) programming model, which introduces high-level metaphors taken from human society, namely *agents* - programmed to perform some kind of tasks and activities and *artifacts* as resources and tools that are dynamically constructed and used by agents to coordinate and execute their individual and collective activities. A&A gets its main inspiration from Activity Theory.
8
9 Being based on a library on top of Java, simpA applications can be compiled and run directly on a flat Java environment.

11 *simpA* technology is fully open-source, hosted on [SourceForge|http://sourceforge.net].
