In this paper we analyze existing methods and languages for modeling agent interactions and propose a SDLMAS Framework for rapid design, development and runtime support of multi-agent systems. The framework provides a simple but expressive declarative language for modeling complex interactions among agents. Proposed language is based on scenarios, sequences of conversation actions directed towards achieving a goal. Scenario descriptions are converted into program code for a chosen target agent platform and system execution is supported by a runtime framework.
