Abstract

Servlet and applet strategies are discussed that can enhance the operations of software agents. In the servlet strategy, the flow takes place from the client to the server and in applet strategy the flow takes place from the server to the client. The state-of-the-art in developing complex systems revolves around software agent technologies. Software agents should be embedded with mechanisms that allow them to make the correct decision: either move or invite.
