IntelliBid [computer file] : an event-trigger-rule-based auction system over the Internet /

by Joshi, Nicky

Abstract (Summary)
ABSTRACT: This thesis presents the design and implementation of an Event-Trigger-Rule-Based auction system called IntelliBid. IntelliBid is constructed by a network of Knowledge Web Servers, each of which consists of a Web server, an Event Manager, an ETR Server, a Knowledge Profile Manager, a Persistent Object Manager, a Metadata Manager, and Bid Servers and their proxies. Together, they provide auction-related services to the creator of an auction site and the bidders and suppliers of products. IntelliBid offers a number of advantages over the existing Internet-based auction systems. First and foremost is the flexibility offered to bidders for defining their own rules to control their bids in an automatic bidding process, which frees the bidders from having to be on-line to place bids. By using different rules, the bidders can apply different bidding strategies. Second, since the rules that control the automatic bidding are installed and processed by the ETR servers installed at bidders' individual sites, bidders' privacy and security are safe-guarded. Third, IntelliBid's event, event filtering and event notification mechanisms keep both bidders and suppliers better and more timely informed of auction events so that they or their software system can take the proper actions in the auction process. Fourth, both bidders and suppliers can have access to the bidding history of a product maintained at the auction site. This
