JADE is a multiagent-based framework widely used for prototyping agent-oriented mechatronic architectures. JADE's messaging performance is normally rated unsuitable for real time operation in a mechatronic context and there are a few papers in the literature backing up this claim. The author's share this view however the main purpose of this paper is to highlight that distinct message exchange coding patters influence the round trip time (RTT) of the messages quite substantially. The paper presents a comparative performance analysis, based on the RTT, of these coding patterns. The majority of the published tests is focused in the evaluation of the RTT when pairs of communicating agents are added to the platform. The analysis presented in this work is focused on the efficiency of each method as the responder agent receives messages continuously.
