Abstract: Web Services and Mobile Agents are two most prominent technologies in current distributed computing world. Built on top of existing Web protocols and based on open XML standards, Web Services are emerging to provide a systematic and extensible framework for application-to-application interaction. It is platform and language independent. Web Services are technologies that define the standardized mechanisms to describe, locate, and communicate services on Internet. Mobile agent is considered an essential technology in the development of distributed software application because of its capability to move across distributed environments, interact with local resources and other mobile agents. Mobile agent allows for more flexible and dynamic structure than traditional systems based on the client-server paradigm. This thesis discusses the necessity and benefit of incorporating the location and platform agnostic Web Services into mobile agent system. How Web Services technologies could be used to help to standardize the mobile agent system. A framework of Web Service Enabled Mobile Agent System has been presented and discussed along with the detail of the implementation. Evaluation and verification have been conducted to ensure that the experimented system performs as the way it is expected.
