The growth of automated services on the Web has facilitated the emergence of a new software development paradigm. This paradigm is based on the composition of disparate services to achieve large-scale, reusable solutions for diverse domains. Borrowing heavily from research in object-oriented software engineering and multiagent systems, the Web service paradigm supports the construction, publication, provision, integration, and utilization of course-grained, software services in open, heterogeneous environments. This article examines this Web service paradigm from an open multiagent systems perspective and contrasts the formally grounded, knowledge-centric view of agents with the pragmatic, declarative, bottom-up approach adopted by Web services.
