The complex nature of the software development paradigm and the rapid acceptance of emerging abstraction mechanisms, such as agent-oriented and service-oriented computing, highlight the increasing need for re-evaluation of existing software development approaches that focus on agile software de-velopment methodologies (primarily originating in object-oriented technology); since existing object-oriented, structure-oriented and component-oriented approaches embodied in an agile approach cannot be applied immediately to agent and service-oriented computing. Therefore, we present here, an agile toolkit (Java-based) to facilitate the construction of multi-abstraction or m-abstraction situation-specific agile processes for software development projects. This paper only presents the newly emergent abstraction concepts of agent and service, and does not discuss the well-established object-oriented mechanism used in current agile approaches.
