Abstract

The adoption of the Multi-Agent System paradigm in the context of Enterprise Information Systems has been accelerated by the technology brought by Internet. The importance of MAS applications increases as the ubiquity of Internet, with its distributed and interconnected elements, becomes a de facto reality. However, the development of MAS is not trivial; agents-based systems are typically complex and difficult to develop due to the features required, some of them hard to implement. In this paper we briefly describe MIDAS, a service oriented (SOA) framework built on a reusable, adaptable and loosely coupled architecture, that aims to help in the development of MAS applications. An application in the domain of expert/customer mediation is presented to evidence the advantages of the framework. After that, the advantages of applying the SOA standard over the traditional message-based approach for MAS development are discussed.
