Janus is a new multiagent platform that was specifically designed to deal with the implementation and deployment of holonic and multiagent systems. It is based on an organizational approach and its key focus is that it supports the implementation of the concepts of role and organization as first-class entities. This consideration has a significant impact on agent implementation and allows an agent to easily and dynamically change its behaviour. The platform also natively manages the concept of holon to facilitate the deployment of holonic multiagent systems and thus contributes to fill the gap between conception and implementation phases in this domain. This article draws a complete description of janus and its main characteristics. A small example of a market-like community is also provided with the associated code review to illustrate the impact of a full organizational approach in terms of code modularity and reusability.
