Mobile agents are capable of enhancing distributed applications due to their inherent characteristics, such as code and state mobility, network awareness, intelligence, and so on. The predominant development language of mobile agent systems is Java due to its platform independence and sandbox security. However, new development frameworks such as Microsoft .net v2.0 and v3.0 provide a promising solution for the future of agent technology, due to features such as server activated objects, and code mobility. The scope of this project is to appraise new development frameworks such as .net in relation to mobile agent technology and investigate the advantages and disadvantages.
