The node selection for the migration of a mobile agent depends on the content of the referenced metadata in the naming space. The reliability of the migrated information is determined by using the operation, cooperation, and metadata of individual agent in multi-agent system. In this paper, the authors propose the metatable and its management method that supports more precise and efficient migration of the mobile agent and sensor network applications. For the service, they develop the metatable consists of the reference object, name, URL, keyword and pointer to sink table. It also includes the add-on information related to the sink node (i.e. sink number, sink information and sink URL) for the sensor network application.
