INTEGRATING AGENT TECHNOLOGIES INTO ENTERPRISE SYSTEMS USING WEB SERVICES

Eduardo H. Ramírez, Ramón F. Brena

Abstract

In this work we present a decoupled architectural approach that allows Software Agents to interoperate with enterprise systems using Web Services. The solution leverages existing technologies and standards in order to reduce the time-to-market and increase the adoption of agent-based applications. Insights on applications that may be enhanced by the model are presented.
