This example proposes an agent that creates some other agent and has a simple conversation with them. Notice how the agent registers itself with the Directory Facilitator.


This agent has the following functionality: 
  • registers with the DF
  • creates a list of agents
  • each of this new agents registers with the DF
  • the father agent sends a message of greeting to each of them
  • it waits for an answer to the greeting
  • it thanks the agents that have answered
