Can Java be used to create agent-based modeling programs? Specifically, can Java create a set of agents, each of whom has individual attributes? Can Java create mechanisms for these agents to interact, and for agents to change their attributes as a result of these interactions? Can Java provide for a visual representation of the agents, their interactions, their aggregations, and their movement OVER TIME? C++ has been used to do this, so it seems logical that Java could also be used. I am not i nterested in doing any programming for the Internet or for website; just programming for agent-based modeling.
If this is not the right forum for asking this question, I would be very grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks...!!

Thanks, Thomas Paul, for scoping out that book. Unfortunately, while it looks very interesting, it is about Artificial Intelligence, rather than about Agent-based modeling. Any other thoughts?

Try RePast and Ascape
These, as well as Swarm, showed up in a simple search at Yahoo. There were many other interesting-looking hits.
