Since Foundation of Intelligent Physical Agent (FIPA) is one of the biggest
organizations that handles standardization in the field of agent-based
technologies we have chosen their reference implementation called JADE and in this paper we are describing possibility to interconnect it with other platform that is not FIPA compliant. Second agent platform, we have chosen, is PN agent platform, which is BDI agent based on formalism of Object Oriented Petri nets. PN agent was chosen for the reason of Object Oriented Petri nets used in its base because when we make PN agent FIPA compliant we open whole new world of possibilities how to use Petri nets inside of it.
Main purpose of this paper is to show how to interconnect two different platforms where one is build upon FIPA standards and the other is not. This scenario is hardened by the fact, that JADE is developed in Java language, while PN agent framework is created in smalltalk, concretely in its squeak implementation.
Other topic of our interest is FIPA compliance in agent platforms. This topic partially covers our effort to bring more openness to the PN agent platform because when we find out, which agent platforms support FIPA standards then we will acquire knowledge of who are we compatible with.
