Recent years have seen rapid advancements in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and software agents resulting, among others, in maturation of their technology platforms. Furthermore, benefits of combining these research areas have been analyzed. The MAPS agent platform allows fusion of agents and WSNs. However, due to the hardware limitation, MAPS misses important functionalities needed, for instance, in advanced decision support. Such functions are available, among others, in the JADE agent platform, geared towards more powerful computing devices. Therefore, integration of MAPS and JADE had to be considered. The aim of this paper is to discuss technical issues involved in achieving this goal.
