Embedding Agents in Web Service Framework for E-Learning

N. Arunachalam, A. Hassan, S. Balaji


This paper is based on the developing of an e-learning application as a XML web service in two ways, a traditional web service application and an agent based XML web service and to compare the two applications based on the heap size (i.e.) memory consumption by services. The comparison proves that the agent when embedded into the web services can perform much better than the traditional web service applications and thus increases the efficiency of the web service.
