A variety of environments currently exist either commercially or in the research community for the development of multi-agent systems for telecommunication applications. Many of them offer the raw tools required for developing agent-based applications. They include provisions for agent mobility, communication, security, and directory facilities among other services. Using a policy-based approach for developing agent systems offers the advantages of systematizing and simplifying development. The approach also offers the potential for dynamic modification of agent system behaviors through changes in policy. This paper briefly reviews some of the previous work in the area of policy management for distributed systems and describes an object-based approach to policy-driven agent development and management.
