Web services management has attracted substantial research and industry interests in recent years. Web services technology is gaining popularity because of its well defined infrastructure aiming at enabling interoperability among heterogeneous applications. However, this interoperability promise also poses a difficulty in building a Web service management framework which can work across organizational boundaries. Software agents have been recognized as a promising technology for managing Web services. However in many proposed frameworks no agent standard is assumed. In this paper, we propose an extension of our existing Web services-agent integration toolkit WS2JADE for Web services management with FIPA compliant multi-agent systems. In particular, we relate our framework to other solutions in the area and show how new emerging Web services management technologies can be used with WS2JADE for enabling Web services management with agents.
