About this book

EXTENDING WEB SERVICES TECHNOLOGIES addresses the rapidly growing impact of Multi-Agent Systems on Web Services tools and techniques by presenting recent and significant developments in the general areas of Web services and software agents. In particular, the book addresses the potential for techniques from Multi-Agent Systems R&D to impact the difficult challenges that must be tackled for Web services technology to realize its promises. The area of Web services offers the multi-agent community exciting research possibilities, including similarities in system architectures, powerful tools, and a focus on issues such as trust and reliability. Likewise, techniques developed in the multi-agent research community promise to have a strong impact on this fast growing technology.

The contents of this volume evolved from a workshop on Web services and agent-based engineering. In addition to the extended workshop papers, the book contains additional contributions written by leading international researchers and professionals from both the Web Services and Multi-Agent Systems community. Topics include:

Technologies for Business-Driven Information Technology Management

Service-Oriented Computing and Software Agents

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This collection of 14 contributions presents a range of issues in the overlap between Web services and software agents. … offers a sense of the broader potential of agent technology to suggest solutions to problems of robust Web services specification and implementation. … The volume could be useful to have in the library of an academic or industrial research group where people are working on problems of Web services orchestration … . In summary, this is a potentially useful collection representing current work … ." (L. Sonenberg, Computing Reviews, April, 2006)
