Performing business processes normally requires dynamic and casual collaborations among enterprises that are not centrally controlled. Enterprise application integration and Peer-to-Peer computing provide a solution to the business processes. Web service integration and agent-based middleware constitute the paradigms to implement enterprise application integration on Peer-to-Peer networks because of the loosely-coupled property of Web services and the autonomous, adaptive, and interactive properties of agents. Previous Web service integration researches focused on Web service integration based on client/server network architecture. However, along with the highly demands of Web service quality, Web services are not always provided on client/server networks. This research aims to construct an agent-based middleware for Web service dynamic integration on Peer-to-Peer networks to pursue the integration of optimal quality of Web services for enterprise application integration. The paper introduces the agent-based middleware including the formalization, Web service dynamic integration model, agent reasoning model, and the application.
