Abstract — This paper aims to present an application for resource discovery in a peer to peer network using mobile agents. Mobile agent technology offers a new computing paradigm in which a program, in the form of a mobile agent, can suspend its execution on a host machine and migrate to another agent enabled target machine and continue its execution there. A discovery algorithm to retrieve resources from peer machines has been developed which uses Mobile Agents written in Java and can be used in data intensive applications where data is remotely located and owned by remote service providers. Keywords—mobile agents, aglets, clone, resource discovery, peer to peer network, itinerary I
