The area of software agent technology is a heavily growing domain. Already in the year 1992 describes agent based computing as the next significant breakthrough in software development, and predicts agent technology as "the new revolution in software". Although these opinions might be exaggerated, currently, agents are the focus of intense interest in many sub-fields of computer science and artificial intelligence. Let us now take a brief look at the most promising characteristics that make agent technology so interesting for the research area of database technology.
An agent is mobile if it is able to migrate from one environment to another. The migration of mobile agents might be strong or weak respectively, depending on whether or not the agent is able to store its internal execution state (i.e. instruction pointer and stack), migrate, and continue its work at any internal point of execution. An agent is able to exchange messages with the environment and especially with other agents. Furthermore, collaboration requires, that an agent is able to jointly work with other agents in addition to simply communicating. An agent is called deliberative, if it has an internal reasoning model empowering it to model its environment, plan actions, and negotiate with other agents.
As agent platforms are expected to work in a highly insecure environment, they have to implement a strong security system. DBagents can adapt this security system and use it for authentication and authorization.

Franz Gruber ( is project manager at the Software Competence Center Hagenberg. Having graduated from the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, he currently worked on several research projects that investigate the applicability of agent technology and other mobile distributed application architectures.
