Agents and services are two concepts that more and more are integrating and exploiting the advantages of each other. Agent-oriented methodologies effectively support the development of agent-based system in the different phases. In this paper, we explore how and how much the most common agent-oriented methodologies are also oriented to the development of services. Rather than searching for the "best" methodology, we aim at defining some evaluation criteria and surveying the existing methodologies considering such criteria.
