This paper proposes a method of agent system development based on agent patterns that represent typical and recurring structures and behaviors of agents. The agent patterns are classified according to their appropriate architectural levels and the degree of their dependence on specific agent platforms. Our method enables developers to design agent systems efficiently since they can construct complicated system architectures and behaviors by dividing the design process into two architectural levels and applying the appropriate agent patterns. In addition, the higher level designs are independent of specific agent platforms and can be therefore easily reused.
