Abstract: Software agents provide the technology necessary to dynamically negotiate, select, and utilize the appropriate services required in today's highly dynamic business world. In this paper, we describe our research into combining an agent platform with a J2EE application server to enable the use of software agents in enterprise applications. This provides the necessary first step of integrating agent technology with other mainstream web server, application server, DB, communication and security technologies, to produce a scalable, robust platform for intelligent applications of various kinds.
