Abstract

The online auction is an important e-commerce application which enables the buying and selling of goods through a dynamic pricing strategy. This paper presents the design and implementation of a multi-access and multi-functional auction system. Users can access the auction system through the Web, WAP-enabled devices and agents, particularly mobile agents. The auction system supports different types of auctions, including English auction, Dutch auction, Yankee auction, Sealed Bid auction and Double auction. In particular, we discuss the mobile agent-based approach in detail by presenting the protocol for implementing different types of auctions.
