Mobile agents' paradigm and technology is emerging as a powerful tool for engineering highly dynamic, reconfigurable distributed systems and applications in heterogeneous environments. This paper proposes a statecharts-based development process for implementing atomic read/write shared memory in mobile ad hoc networks(geoqurums approach), which allows for a seamless transition from the specification of mobile agent behavior to its implementation and adaptation to target mobile agent systems. In particular. modeling of the mobile agent behavior is visual and its coding is seamlessly supported by the Mobile Active Object Framework(MAOF). the coded agent behavior can be adapted to platform-specific mobile agents by means of the Mobile Agent Adaptation Framework(MAAF). thus, enabling re-use of existing mobile agent systems.
