P2P Directory >  Agents as Peers, Development Frameworks > Anthill


Anthill is an experimental framework created by members of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bologna. Anthill's goal is to simplify P2P application development and deployment by freeing the programmer of all low-level details including communication, security and ant scheduling.

Anthill is based on the multi-agent system (MAS) paradigm and strives to integrate the evolutionary techniques of natural systems into its framework. Gnutant is an ant algorithm implementing a document sharing application. There is also a prototype implementation of a real network environment. A development site, publications and Javadoc-generated documentation is available.
