Online Shopping, intelligent agents, transaction layers


A main problem with online shopping is that it has to be done manually by filling up online forms. Another problem is that there are no established standards for online contracts. This paper presents an Automated Online Shopping Framework (AOSF) that addresses these issues and provides some solutions. AOSF allows setting up of some parameters in web services so that the system automatically searches for the product, negotiates with the other party and seals the deal by signing a contract. AOSF can also be used to sell products. Technologies such as intelligent agents, XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI are used for this purpose.
