This paper introduces properties and object-oriented models of software agents. Based on literature on agent technology, properties of agents are explained systematically. Agent systems are understood as a software architecture type. To simplify and refine this complex topic, special models describing properties of re-usable agents are discussed. This leads to the prefabrication for mobility, co-ordination and security as building block and property classes for the construction of special agent application architectures. The prefabricated classes and the constructive use of object-oriented techniques simplify the development of agent application system.
