Abstract

The specifications of agent systems, like the Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents (FIPA) and the Mobile Agent Facility Specification of the Object Management Group (MAF-OMG), offer a yellow pages service to find the provided services in the agent community. When the services is not locally available, the local yellow pages service con- tacts the ones of other domains. The consequence of the automatic extension of the agent domains leads to unbound searches which in turn may lead to unbound bills in the case of paying services.
