Questions:

  • What is this technology used for? Could someone list some sample apps?
  • How widespread is it? Does it have "competition" (other frameworks, either Java or not, that are used for the same thing) ?

Aglets is one of mobile mobile agent platform. Mobile agent is a fundamental technology of software development, just like Object-oriented programming or Functional programming. So, your question is similar to "What is Object-orientd programming?" or "Is there any sample apps of Java API" :). Unfortunately, mobile agent technology is in research step, so, showing a practical sample of mobile agent may difficult.
Because this techonology is in research step, not in practical use step, there's no "competition", but, as a "congener", there is(was) "Telescript" (made by General Magic). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 222.230.87.183 (talk) 17:02, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
