Objectives: The paper defines an agent structure that will help in designing of the agents in agent oriented software development. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The paper proposes a structure AGNT7 that defines elements needed in designing of an intelligent software agent. AGNT7 covers implementation aspect of agent. It is based on XML language. The paper defines all seven elements of the structure in detail. It also defines interaction among elements needed to proper functioning of agent. Findings: Two cases have been designed using proposed structure. It shows that all elements in the structure are necessary and worth for designing of intelligent software agent. Designed agent also exhibits evolving nature which is needed to update itself with changing requirements. Proposed structure also shows use of XML language in providing evolving capability in the agent. The paper defines various formats of XML language that can be utilized in software development based on agents. It also defines mathematical representation of elements of proposed structure. Applications/Improvement: AGNT7 provides clear guidelines to developer for designing of agent that speeds programming of software based on agents.
