Abstract Since 2005 an annual multi-agent programming contest has been held to stimulate research in the area of multi-agent systems. The Multi Agent Programming Contest 2010 scenario was to solve a cooperative task in a dynamic environment using a multi-agent system. This report focuses on developing a modular multi-agent framework which is extended to use in the contest scenario. The framework will oer communication and logging facilities usable in any multi-agent system. The framework will be extended with parts specifically designed for the competition scenario. The solution is build on the Managed Extensible Framework, which is a Dependency Injection framework that facilitates modularity, reusability and extensibility. Pathnding is a big part of the challenge presented by the competition scenario. Therefore different pathfinding algorithms are investigated, tested and tweaked to improve the performance of the system.
