Abstract

Designing and implementing Organic Computing systems is typically a difficult task. To facilitate the construction a design pattern for Organic Computing systems has been developed. This organic design pattern (ODP) helps in modeling and designing a broad class of Organic Computing systems. This paper focuses on the implementation of Organic Computing systems with the help of this pattern. The core idea is to provide a generic implementation by mapping ODP artifacts to artifacts of a multi-agent frame-work. The used framework – AgentService – is one of the few C# multi-agent frameworks. In this paper a possible implementation as well as benefits and limitations are described.
