Summary: With the development of Internetware technology, software development is facing the frequently changing requirement and environment. To cope with the variable context, agent-based dynamic system integration is implemented in this paper. With the application of agent technology, script-based control integration strategy and Contract Net Protocol mechanism, the dynamic transition of integration requirements is achieved and environmental variations are tackled flexibly. Additionally, the agent-based system dynamic integration development platform and tools are implemented to support the dynamic system integration, and the integration development process is also proposed which explicitly presents all the phases in the process. Finally, the effectiveness of the integration development platform and tools is demonstrated well in a group of systematic experiments and the dynamic integration is also achieved.
