Abstract: The field of mobile agents should shift its emphasis toward mobile code, in all its forms, rather than continue focusing on mobile agents. The development of modular components will help application designers take advantage of code mobility without having to rewrite their applications to fit in monolithic, mobile agent systems.
Keywords: mobile computing, security, mobile-agent
