Abstract
As electronic commerce(EC) has grown rapidly, agents that work on the behalf of humans on the Internet are being used actively. However, most of the EC agents have some problems. They fail to fully support buyers' decision making behaviors and sellers' information supply activities. Further, they are not suited for mobile computing environment. In this paper, we introduce a Multi-Mobile Agents System (MMAS) that has been developed according to a conceptual framework that corrects the aforementioned problems. Built by using Tokyo IBM ASDK(Aglets Software Development Kit) for the area of hotel reservation, the system consists of buyer- and seller-side agents that interact with each other; buyer-side agents help buyers to make purchasing decisions by collecting and analyzing information through applying a multi-criteria decision making method, while seller-side agents substitute fur sellers by managing databases and providing real-time information to the buyer-side agents. In this system, multiple agents perform their shared tasks at the same time in order to increase efficiency. Users do not have to keep the connection with the system because they are notified when tasks are done.

Abstract
전자상거래가 급속히 성장함에 따라 인터넷 상에서 인간을 대신하여 작업을 수행하는 에이전트가 활발히 사용되고 있다. 그러나, 현존하는 대부분의 전자상거래 에이전트들은 몇 가지 문제점을 가지고 있다. 그들은 구매자의 의사결정 행위 및 판매자의 정보 제공 활동을 완전히 지원하지 못하고 있다. 또한 이동 컴퓨팅 (mobile computing) 환경에도 적합하지 않다. 본 논문에서는 앞서 언급한 문제점들을 시정한, 개념적 프레임워크에 의거하여 개발된 다중-이동 에이전트 시스템 (MMAS: Multi-Mobile Agents System)을 소개한다. Tokyo IBM외 ASDK(Aglets Software Development Kit)을 사용하여 호텔 예약 분야에 대해 개발된 본 시스템은 상호 작용을 하는 구매자 측 에이전트와 사용자 측 에이전트로 구성되어 있다; 구매자 측 에이전트는 정보를 수집하고 다기준 의사결정 방법을 활용하여 이를 분석함으로써 구매자의 구매 의사결정을 도와주며, 판매자 측 에이전트는 판매자를 대신하여 데이터베이스를 관리하고 실시간 정보를 구매자 측 에이전트에게 제공한다. 본 시스템에서는 다중의 에이전트들이 효율성을 증대시키기 위하여 동시에 분담된 업무를 수행한다. 본 시스템은 위탁받은 작업이 끝나면 사용자들에게 이를 통지를 해주기 때문에 사용자들은 시스템과의 연결을 지속하고 있을 필요가 없다.
