The Bond project provides Java middleware for network-centric
computing. Bond is an agent-based, message-oriented system using
KQML as a communication language. The middleware consists of a
communication infrastructure and frameworks for building metaobjects
and agents. We also provide frameworks for various aspects of complex
object design e.g. security, monitoring. An application of Bond will be a
Virtual Laboratory supporting data annotation and metacomputing.

A number of papers describe the communication fabric, the architecture,
the servers,and the  agents. Links to related projects are provided.

This project is supported by the National Science Foundation
