Mobile agents applications

Mobile agents applications Automatic, autonomous browsing has an increasingly important task in information discovery and assisted browsing on the Internet. Where users could once keep up to date with information of interest on the Internet, the recursive growth of the network has made this process increasingly time consuming and less rewarding. Presents two possible solutions to this problem: Data Agents and CollaborAgents which were developed with IBM’s Aglet Workbench – a particular implementation of mobile agents. Also surveys the agent technology and discusses the agent building package used to develop both mentioned applications. Concludes that the future of local interaction, reduced network loading, server flexibility and application autonomy which are supported by mobile agent technology, all help to provide a level agility above distributed problem solving. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Internet Research Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Automatic, autonomous browsing has an increasingly important task in information discovery and assisted browsing on the Internet. Where users could once keep up to date with information of interest on the Internet, the recursive growth of the network has made this process increasingly time consuming and less rewarding. Presents two possible solutions to this problem: Data Agents and CollaborAgents which were developed with IBM’s Aglet Workbench – a particular implementation of mobile agents. Also surveys the agent technology and discusses the agent building package used to develop both mentioned applications. Concludes that the future of local interaction, reduced network loading, server flexibility and application autonomy which are supported by mobile agent technology, all help to provide a level agility above distributed problem solving.
