The paper presents the software platform that supports the activity of computational agents in a broad heterogeneous distributed computer environment. It is a set of software servers that support: agent?s serialization and externalization; agent?s sensors that examine the neighbouring machine resources; migration mechanism enabling every agent to take an independent migration decision based on the current execution context; resources protection mechanisms including forcing agent migration and agent hibernation to disk. The platform prototype is deployed on Java Virtual Machine. The communication is realized by the CORBA framework. Sample work results and tests for the SBS parallel linear solver are provided and compared with the solver low-level, PVM version.
