This paper presents the core features of JADEL,an agent-oriented domainspecific programming language for the construction of JADE agents, behaviours and ontologies. The work on JADEL originates from the need to assist programmers by means of tools that reduce the complexity and speed up the construction of a JADE agents and multi-agent systems. The features of JADEL discussed in this paper include abstractions for the main entities of JADE—agents, behaviours and ontologies—and they also encompass the features needed for the construction of domain-specific tasks, thus enriching JADE APIs with novel and simple notations.
