A next generation distributed system is expected to be flexible in the sense that the system is able to deal with various changes of both the users' requirements and the operational conditions of system's environment. The aim of our research is to establish a new design methodology of the flexible distributed systems based on agent-based computing technology. To do so, we propose an agent-based distributed information processing system (ADIPS) as a design model of flexible distributed systems. Furthermore, we have developed an agent-based computing framework called ADIPS Framework which supports the design and implementation of flexible distributed systems. In this paper, we discuss the architecture and fimctions of ADIPS Framework together with the applications realized by using ADIPS framework.
