Grid computing enables the sharing of resources across multi-institutional virtual organizations. Many of the software issues faced by Grid computing systems bear semblance to issues that multi-agent system (MAS) researchers have grappled with in the last 20 years. Issues such as negotiation and multi-party coordination are common to both Grid and agent systems. Consequently, the software engineering of agent based system could lead toward better approaches in creating large scale Grid computing software systems. In this paper, we will review the state of art in agent oriented software engineering (AOSE) techniques useful in a Grid computing environment. We shall also examine other AOSE techniques which are not Grid specific and examine their suitability for such applications.
