Abstract

Agent-Oriented Software Development is one of the recent contributions to the field of Software Engineering. To date numerous methodologies for agent-oriented software development have been proposed in the literature. However, tfieir application to real-world problems is still limited due to their lack of maturity. Evaluating their strengths and weaknesses is an important step towards developing better methodologies in the future. This paper presents research results obtained by applying three agent-oriented methodologies, namely ROADMAP, MaSE and Prometheus in the context of an E-commerce system. The results are presented and future work is discussed.
