Agent-driven Simulation Framework-AdSiF provides a declarative scripting agent programming language. Stateoriented programming paradigm combined with multi-programming paradigms is at the background of script, which allows programming by extended state charts. Aspect-oriented programming paradigm draws a solution background related with scattered codes, scattered requirements and tangled requirements. While object-oriented programming paradigm gives a vertical software design, aspect orientation enhances this vertically deep design by horizontal association. Aspect-oriented programming paradigm, which is one of the components of AdSiF’s state oriented programming paradigm, provides a solution by a loosely-coupled script description to the problems mentioned. For this purpose, states and behaviours, which satisfy scattered requirements, are distributed to behaviour’s and behaviour lists, respectively and behaviour phase transitions based on behaviours and active states are allowed. In addition to all, Furthermore, in simulation and agent programming world, the solution provides a solution by shifting modelling aspects conditionally in run time for conceptually different modelling requirements and also tangled requirements. The solution carries aspect oriented programming from design time to execution time and provides a dynamically manageable, flexible, loosely coupled and high coherent design.
