This paper deals with the application of multi-agent systems in the electronic market (e-market). Proposed is a multi-agent system which enables the complete automation of business processes and should be able to automate the semantic comparison of required and advertised Web services according to user preferences. The system consists of semantic and mobile agents responsible for autonomous service discovery, automated negotiation and automated purchase. Specific concepts and ontologies used for creating semantic information and agent interactions, as well as mechanisms that provide the ability of semantic reasoning, are presented. A case study elaborates upon the developed agent-mediated e-market operations and interactions between agents during the transactions simulated in the business process of Multimedia Service.
