Programming abstractions for integrating autonomous and reactive behaviors: an agent-oriented approach

   page       attach   

The integration of autonomous and reactive behavior is a relevant problem in the context of concurrent programming, related to the integration of thread-based and event-driven programming. From a programming paradigm perspective, the problem can not be easily solved by approaches based on object-oriented concurrent programming or by the actor model, being them natively based on the reactivity principle only. In this paper we tackle the problem with agent-oriented programming, using an agent-oriented programming language called simpAL.
