Agentware - Dreams to realities 1
Dreams to realities 1

In this application, we see an agent spawned at a WebPlace, going to a YellowPagesPlace, meeting a TicketAgent which gives it a list of possible information sources, which the agent visits in turn before returning to render a customised web page containing the results of its search. On the way it has unduplicated information.

Let's examine a few of the key ideas the language; for example, there's GO which means suspend my existence "here"; use the communications infrastructure to go "there" to continue or complete my tasking. As an aside, Security is an important part of Telescript, designed into every part of it; for example:

  • GO requires a valid destination as its argument
  • Destinations must "accept" incoming agents
