ASEME is an emerging Agent Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE) methodology. The Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) paradigm encourages software modelers to automate the transition of one type of software model to another and eventually the code generation process. This paper builds on previous work that describes the model-driven development of agent systems using ASEME and creating a Platform Independent Model (PIM) that adheres to the language of statecharts, the Intra-Agent Control Model. In this contribution we use the generated statecharts and show how to automatically transform them to Java programs using the Java Agent Development Framework (JADE). All agent and behaviour classes are automatically generated including the agent interaction protocols.
