“This book provides insights into the issues related to the convergence of agent-based and service-oriented computing methods. … The book’s strength lies in its use of simple, example-based algorithms for various important attributes of service-oriented and agent-based computing. … an encyclopedia for readers who are interested in conducting research on agent-based and service-oriented computing. Practitioners will find this book useful for understanding the underlying principles of these two contemporary methods, and will thus be able to use them appropriately to design and develop user-centered services.” (Harekrishna Misra, ACM Computing Reviews, April, 2011)
