Abstract

Agent technology has a number of characteristics that make it well suited for automating information processing tasks and information retrieval. The authors propose a pragmatic approach for applying mobile agent technology within distributed database management systems (DBMSs). The developed agent environment is based on the Oracle DBMS. It differs from other agent platforms (e.g. Aglets, Voyager) in its support of error recovery, transactions, efficient data processing, and security mechanisms. Building mobile database agents upon these services, the run-time environment is faster, more secure and much easier to handle.
