Abstract/Artist Statement

Lilypad Net (LPnet) is a Java based system for developing and supporting mobile agents: computer programs that can independently traverse the Internet and interact with users and other agents. The goal of LPnet is to provide a system built from ubiquitous, freely available parts which is both simple enough to provide an introduction to programming for agent based systems and powerful enough to support research projects. LPnet includes high-level, domain specific commands that greatly simplify its use by beginning programmers. For advanced users, LPnet supports a number of different programming languages and styles. These styles include: procedural or object oriented programming with Python via Jython, functional programming with Scheme, and declarative programming with Prolog. In short, LPnet is designed to introduce open source mobile agents to the general public.
