I tried to simulate org.eclipse.tptp.TimeCollector and
org.eclipse.tptp.JavaTimeCollector to implement the agent which can be
started by Agent Controller. It seems the only thing I need to do is to
create the directory with the agent name in <AC_Home>/agents and edit
agent.xml in it. The key point is "Application" element. It seems Agent
Controller tries to execute the command defined in this element when
IAgentController.getAgent(String agentName, String agentClassName) is
invoked. And I checked whether the agent is deployed correctly via

I still have 2 questions.
1. What's the meaning of "ConfigFile" element? I found the agent works well
even the config file is not existed.
2. I found the relative path in "Application" element doesn't work in my
environment. I have to declare the absolute path. Is this a bug?

Thanks a lot!
