Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is gaining acceptance in many application domains as a way to structure system for flexibility and for better alignment with business goals. Peer-to-peer (P2P) systems are suited to digital ecosystems for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) because they allow each service client machine to act also as a service provider. There is no large enterprise that acts as a central hub in the network of business relationships. SMEs organize themselves in complex web of dynamic inter-relationships within the digital ecosystem. Most present P2P system had been designed with a fixed infrastructure in mind rather than a wireless or mobile infrastructure. However, mobile wireless smart-phones are increasingly being used as business tools. This paper proposes an intelligent agent mediated peer-to-peer service-oriented architecture (SOA) that could be used to address the dynamic requirements of a mobile and fixed infrastructure and hence provide a seamless service environment of for SME digital business ecosystems.
