An approach to service description and composition is presented. It is based on agent technology, and on the idea of separating description and composition language from biding, i.e., from specification of data format (exchanged by applications) and transport protocol. Usually, the biding is an integral part of description language, e.g., WSDL, and DAML-S. Starting with this idea, a simple service description language is constructed as well as a composition protocol is specified. Agents play crucial role in our approach; they are responsible for service composition.
