The miniaturization of devices and
the prolific interconnectedness of
these devices over high-speed wireless networks are completely changing
how commerce is conducted. These
changes (a.k.a. digital) will profoundly
change how enterprises operate. Software is at the heart of this digital world,
but the software toolsets and languages were conceived for the host-based
era. The issues that already plague
software practice (such as high defects,
poor software productivity, information vulnerability, and poor software
project success rates) will be more
profound with such an approach. It is
time for software to be made simpler,
secure, and reliable.
Moving software from its computing foundation to a communication foundation will ensure the
promise and benefits of digital are
more widely shared.

<!-- Because this agent is in a sequence operation,
the same agent is called recursively -->

The ContactAgent accepts the FirstName, LastName, MobileNumber, and EmailId. It
activates the EditContactAgent. The AvatarName, which is how the agent is identified, is the

The EditContactAgent shows the different actions shown by the contact. The different actions
that are enabled for each contact are Edit, Delete, and View. These actions are shown in a
choice, as only one action can be taken. Upon interacting with one option, the other actions go away.
