In ubiquitous environment the multi-agent system is effective for providing intelligent services. In this paper we introduce a new scheduling service model for improving the communication performance in the multi-agent system. It is achieved by assigning a priority to the message according to the weight of formalized ACL message and the number of messages exchanged between the agents. An experiment reveals that the proposed approach allows smaller processing time per message and turnaround time than the scheduling with the existing JADE platform. Moreover, the proposed scheme allows a scalable messaging system.
