Abstract

Achieving interoperability and automation in job execution is of utmost importance for next generation e-Commerce applications. This paper proposes a design that integrates three prominent technologies: intelligent software agents, peer-to-peer networking and the Semantic Web. SeMPHoNIA is an architecture for an agent-based marketplace, utilizing knowledge from RDF product repositories, in an open peer-to-peer environment. The platform defines the basic stages of the process of e-trading, facilitating users in closing deals in automated manner. The implementation of our approach is demonstrated in the context of auction scenarios. A performance evaluation of the system is also presented.
