The current state-of-the-art in developing software applications is to design the systems based on visual design tools and take the resulting design artifact as a base to manually code the software application. The process of transferring the (business) requirements to executable code involves several different parties which makes the whole process again very error prone. In this paper, we present a model-driven approach to overcome the gap between business requirements on the one side and multiagent systems on the other, as we consider the use of agents for implementation beneficial in contrast to more traditional approaches like the WS-BPEL engine.
