Java servlets as agents??
Oh dear, I'm so lost - don't know anything about AI.
This whitepaper on Sun's site suggests that java servlets can be used for agents needing to communicate with each other. (Under "any Ways to Use Servlets", third bullet.) Perhaps I'm assuming they mean 'agent' in the AI sence of the term, but they mean 'agent' in more of a commercial sense.
My gut feeling is that java servlets are too heavy for being used as AI-agents, and, isn't a servlet tied to the web server it's running on? Don't agents need to "move around", so to speak, without being tied to a particular server? Perhaps I'll borrow my brother's CMPT 317 textbook. Hum.
