Interoperability between different systems is becoming a more important issue for open distributed systems. In this paper, we investigate what kind of framework we need for constructing open distributed systems. Firstly, we enumerate the features and functions which the framework should have. We then evaluate a proposed multi-agent framework, Bee-gent, by using a typical example of open distributed systems. Lastly, we show clearly what is required for such a framework.
