Ubiquitous negotiation games : a case study
Jean-Marc Andreoli, Stefania Castellani, Reinhard Brandl
We claim that negotiation is a powerful abstract notion for the coordination of generic services available from
distributed components. This is the main motivation underlying the development of XPLORE, a middleware
infrastructure for component service negotiation. We illustrate it here by breaking down an existing
e-negotiation application into a set of autonomous components coordinated through XPLORE. We chose
NegotiAuction (TM) as our case-study, because it combines various elements from negotiation and auction
protocols, which demand for a diversified representation in XPLORE.
