TitleMobile Agents in E-Commerce - A quantitative evaluation
Conferencepublication at ADCOM 2000 in Kochin  -   2000
Author(s)Rahul Jha  Sridhar Perur  Vikram Jamwal  Sridhar Iyer 
AbstractMobile Agents (MA) are emerging as a promising paradigm for the design and implementation of e-commerce applications. While MAs have generated considerable excitement in the research community, they have not translated into a significant number of real-world applications. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of work that quantitatively evaluates the effectiveness of MAs versus traditional approaches. This paper contributes towards such an evaluation. We first classify the existing MA applications in e-commerce and identify the underlying mobility patterns. We discuss possible Client-Server (CS) and Mobile Agent based implementation strategies for each of these patterns. We have performed experiments to quantitatively evaluate these different strategies using the Voyager framework. We present our observations and discuss their implications.
