An effective agent-based design approach is significant in engineering agent-based systems. Existing design approaches meet with challenges in designing Internet-based open agent systems. The emergence of service-oriented computing (SOC) brings in intrinsic mechanisms for complementing agent-based computing (ABS). In this paper, we investigate the dialogue between agent and service, and between ABS and SOC. As a consequence, we synthesize them and develop a design approach called agent service-oriented design (ASOD). The ASOD consists of agent service-based architectural design and detailed design. ASOD expands the content and range of agent and ABS, and synthesizes the qualities of SOC such as interoperability and openness, and the performances of ABC like flexibility and autonomy. The above techniques have been deployed in developing an online trading and mining support infrastructure F-Trade. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
