The conversion of a MAS into a FIPA-compliant system (i.e. one that adheres to FIPA standards), is important to support interoperability across different MAS. Supporting such a conversion will also allow system developers to make more effective use of their existing systems. Such a conversion imposes amendments on the system architecture to conform to the new (FIPA) standards, which require extensive code re-writes and testing procedures. We propose a different approach to achieving FIPA compliance by providing specialized gateways, which act as wrappers between the legacy (non-FIPA) systems, and a system developed to FIPA specifications. We demonstrate this approach based on a MAS utilising an active digital library composed of multi-spectral images of the Earth, as part of the Synthetic Aperture Radar Atlas (SARA).
