Jackal is a Java-based tool for communicating with the KQML agent communication language. Some features which make it extremely valuable to agent development are its conversation management facilities, flexible, blackboard style interface and ease of integration. Jackal has been developed in support of an investigation of the use of agents in shop oor information ow. This paper describes Jackal at a surface and design level, and presents an example of its use in agent construction.
