Developing intelligent agents and cognitive models is a complex software-engineering activity. This article shows how tools to create intelligent agents can be improved by taking advantage of established software-engineering principles such as high-level languages, maintenance-oriented development environments, and software reuse. We describe how these principles have been realized in the Herbal integrated development environment, a collection of tools that allows agent developers to exploit modem software-engineering princip les.
