Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) are considered one of the most important software paradigms, thanks to excellent results that they achieve in industry, communications, etc. They can improve on current method for conceptualizing, designing and implementing software systems and can be the solution to the legacy software integration.
MAS are composed by agents or software agents, a special software component which is characterized by an autonomous social proactive reactive behaviour. This social behaviour is one of the most important agent features because they can set up agent’s societies which become in a Multi-Agent System. An agent can compete or collaborate with other agents to achieve its objectives, forming different society models
