|Title:||SOFTWARE DISTRIBUTION USING MOBILE AGENTS|
|Authors:||Singh, Rajeev T.|
SOFTWARE DISTRIBUTION-MOBILE AGENTS
TOKYO RESEARCH LAB
|Abstract:||This - project is an attempt to simplify the task of software distribution by using mobile agents. The aim of this work is to provide the network administrator with a tool, which saves him from the tedious routine of physically going to each and every node of the network in a typical organization scenario, in the process of distributing the required software on the nodes. Mobile agents are simply software agents that are not bound to the system where they begin execution. They have the ability to transport themselves from one system to another remote location to complete their task there. Software Distribution is one of the area in which mobile agents can be used effectively. A Distribution agent can carry software across the network reducing the workload on the network administrator. The project uses Aglets SDK as the mobile agent platform developed by IBM's Tokyo Research Lab for the development of software distribution aglet. Here the main focus has been on carrying software to remote location and initiating the installation procedure. Several clones of this agent can be created and software can be attached to these clones and sent to different system across the network.|
