Not sure if this is the correct list for this questions.
I'm thinking of building a simple agent based system on top of Hadoop.
I basically want to reuse the process control infrastructure that Hadoop
has built up.
The idea would be to distribute agents to nodes using map and the agents
would then pick up tasks from a JMS type interface.
I was thinking a slimmed down JADE (http://jade.tilab.com/).
Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated or pointers to existing
