This page is dedicated to the "Mobile Code Toolkit" that provides an infrastructure for advanced network management based on mobile code. The framework was developed at the Network Management and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada as part of the "Perpetuum Mobile Procura" research project investigating the benefits of mobile code and how to employ mobile code technology for network management purposes. 
Before you jump into the mobile code toolkit framework, it is worth-reading the following paper that should give you an overview of the principal components of the framework. 

A lecture on the organization and operation of the toolkit, along with a description of the current state of the mobile agent facility specification, can be found at the link below:
Mobile Code Toolkit
The Mobile Code Toolkit has been implemented and can be downloaded from this site. The framework is 100% written in JAVA. It provides a mobile code runtime environment named the mobile code daemon (MCD)  that is ready to receive a mobile code and instantiate it securely. The challenge is now to develop intelligent, autonomous mobile code applications to perform specific tasks and to develop virtual managed components that allow a mobile code access to managed resources uniformily no matter what the underlying implementation or platform. Various publications of the Network Management and Artificial Intelligence Lab describe results in applying this framework in network management. 

The following is the documentation for the Mobile Code Toolkit framework: 

The latest Mobile Code Toolkit software is available here: The framework requires the JDK 1.1.1 or above. If you do not have the JDK 1.1.x yet, please obtain the free copy from http://www.javasoft.com
