Messaging mechanisms for Web Services are tending towards an agent paradigm which is based on very flexible addressing and semantics of messages on top of communication protocols that aim at macro objectives shared by a group of participants. Recent improvements in Web Services make it possible to integrate agents and Web Services in a common messaging framework that includes both architectures integrally. The present work describes the integration based on the properties of both scenarios. The proposed integrated architecture is discussed and related work reviewed to conclude with a numerous set of research areas that are enabled by this elemental step.
