Service oriented applications have the ability to change their constituent services. This involves that they have the ability to change both their functionality and their quality of service requisites at runtime. In this paper, multi-agent system is used, which uses multiple double auctions, to enable applications to self-adapt, based on their Quality of Service attributes and cost constraints. The authors use a Continuous Double-Auction (CDA) to allow applications to decide which services to select among all services. Cloud based multi agent system is shown to be an effective mechanism, to allow both service consumers and service providers to self-adapt to dynamically changing QoS requirements.
