Abstract
We describe a set of software tools for rapid prototyping of distributed applications. The toolkit is based upon a model of computational agents that are distributed in a developer specified manner throughout a host network of workstations. The model makes no assumptions concerning network heterogeneity. The distribution and functionality of agents completely specifies the communication patterns and topology of the distributed system. Agents that follow the communication protocol may be written in any language. The intended usage of this toolkit is for both education and rapid prototyping of distributed applications.
