No special mechanism is provided.
In an application we developed in the past, we used a special broker agent that was able to deal with this functionality. Agents can register their interests with the Broker and the Broker can use the pattern matching capability of jade.lang.acl.MessageTemplate in order to forward messages to the interested agents.
