Abstract

We report our effort on the AgenEvo project, which develops an evolution approach to re-engineer legacy systems into agent-based Web services. We first survey the key technologies, which are adopted in this paper. After discussing the basic features of the Web services and agent, we focus on agent-based Web services, which are hot spot in web-based research area. We argue that agent-based Web services are well suited to building software solutions for distributed, open and dynamic web-based systems. Next, we introduce our approach on re-engineering framework and working flow. The method that integrates agents with Web services for legacy system evolution is proposed and an example on how to use agent-based Web services software evolution framework and methodology to re-engineer the legacy system is illustrated. Finally, we conclude the paper and suggest the directions of the possible future research.
