Abstract

In recent years, event-based communication paradigm has been extensively studied and it is considered a promising approach to develop the communication infrastructure of distributed systems. In most of previously developed event systems, events are defined as simple messages, such as records tuples, or simple objects. Our work introduces a new approach which allows events to be represented as mobile intelligent agents that are called agvents (agent event) in the context of an agent-based distributed event system, the Agvent System. In this paper, we present the dispatching mechanism implemented by the Agvent System, where agvents are responsible for determining their own paths through the network, selecting target nodes and moving themselves to these targets.
