Peer-to-peer technologies have emerged as an alternative to traditional client-server networking which can enable highly scalable end-to-end applications. The coupling of agent platforms with peer-to-peer overlay networks enables the integration of many agent platforms and enriches the semantic functionality of peer-to-peer systems. Here we present two important results based on combining recent work in FIPA agents and peer-to-peer service oriented middleware. First we describe the coupling between peer-to-peer overlay and the FIPA agent platform, including how the overlay can be used by APs to discover each other. Second we describe the relationship between agent services and peer services, including service discovery and mapping mechanisms. Finally we discuss the benefits of this integration.
