Agents, grids, and middleware are more closely related than most might think. The author discusses the software architecture for two software projects: one involving infrastructure for distributed, pervasive computing; the other involving partitioning huge data sets across data grids consisting of thousands of PCs. On the surface, these projects seem very different, but there are similarities and lessons we can learn from comparing them that have implications for agents, grids, Web services, pervasive computing, and middleware.
