Abstract

The invention provides an object-oriented system for building and deploying intelligent agent-based search and comparison application quickly and easily for retrieving and comparing information of any type for any industry. The core of the invented system is a suite of modular software engines that are suited to rapid development of semi-custom applications, including: an intelligent agent parallel search and comparison engine, a proxy engine that registers saved queries on host sites, and an agent-based engine that pushes data to online forms, web sites, or databases. A series of tools, all accessed from a common interface, are used to create new applications, alter engine performance, add new information sources to the engine, and make other administrative changes without the necessity of relying on individuals with specialized skills, such as programmers or IS personnel. A scaleable architecture enables the development and deployment of applications capable of performing complicated information retrieval tasks on behalf of a consumer or merchant in the area of network-based information retrieval. Advantageously, the intelligent agent based applications can navigate and understand all possible Internet-based sources: WWW sites, Newsgroups, online libraries, FTP sites and text files and can communicate via all standard protocols including http, via SSL, redirection, cookies and any other security mechanisms.
