Abstract

Mobile agents and framework built on mobile agents have been the key research area for the past few years. The major impedances like latency factor, abrupt disconnection in service, and minimal processing power, were solved in the mobile agent paradigm. Also, with the advent of intelligent framework of mobile agents, mobile agents were empowered with decision making powers and were able to roam the network in search of the best service provider. This further increased the efficiency of the system and reduced the system outage time. Although the system projected itself as the ideal solution to the real-world problems, it could not be implemented in commercial applications. This is attributed to the lack of sessions in the mobile agent’s environment. Predominantly in the mobile agents paradigm architecture was still the client-server architecture. In this chapter the framework has been extended to incorporate transaction capabilities to the mobile agents. This would enable them to perform a full transaction and complete a workflow. We present the scenario of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) where the framework could be put to use.
