We can expect that more and more of today’s business function will be done using the web and that the companies that get there most rapidly will be the ones rewarded with market share, whether they be today’s leaders or new entrants. Component architectures will be the critical success factor in making those applications happen. As the next generation consumers become more comfortable with doing business on the web, they will continue to demand more and better quality services, whether using the PC, cell phone or other more esoteric product currently on the drawing board.

The second approach, called source-centric, requires the global schema to be specified independently from the sources. The relationships between the global schema and the sources are established by defining every source as a view over the global schema. Thus, in the local-centric approach, we specify the meaning of the sources in terms of the concepts in the global schema. A comparison between the two approaches is reported in [8]. The ultimate goal of a data integration system is to answer queries posed by the user in terms of the global schema.

The expected action of the agent a is the expected value of the variable ha,t , that is E(ha,t ). Definition 7 (expected situated action). The expected situated action of the agent a is the expected value of the variable ha,t conditioned by the situation a, σ, t , that is E(ha,t | a, σ, t ). Definition 8 (party). A set of agents G ⊆ P is said to be a party. Let L be a language used to describe the environment (agents and objects), actions, scenes, situations, situated executed actions and expected situated actions, and G be a party.
