Abstract: Two implementations of Action Rules are presented in the context of a
WAM-like Prolog system: one follows a meta-call based approach, the
other uses suspended WAM environments on the WAM heap. Both are based
on a similar program transformation that clarifies the semantics of
Action Rules, while using different primitives. Their implementation
is compared experimentally to the TOAM-based implementation of Action
Rules in B-Prolog. The suspension based approach is faster at
reactivating agents on the instantiation event. The meta-call
approach is easier to implement, performs overall very good and much
better for synchronous events, and it is more flexible than the
suspension based approaches.
