The use of organisational structures enables one to clearly scope the interactions between parties that collaborate toward a common goal. The representation of an agent organisation as a first class entity is a frequently missing feature in platforms for multiagent systems, and it is normally left as a result of the emergent behaviour of interacting agents. This is also the case for JADE, one of the most commonly used multiagent system middlewares. This paper presents JadeOrgs, an extension to JADE that introduces Organisations and Roles as first level entities available at runtime.
