It is evident that cyberspace will become more and more commercialized in near future1. Reasonably, trading information agents have to be equiped with sophisticated methods for making economically rational decisions [666, 80]. A personalized rational information agent may make purchases for his customer up to a preauthorized limit, filter information and solicitation from vendors, dynamically trades commodities and components within business-to-business digital markets, and increase the level of trust in his actions gradually over time. Most current tools for developing agents for electronic commerce (EC) in the Web fall into the categories conversational interfaces and profiling, collaborative filtering, comparison-shopping, and agent-based marketplaces [304, 264].
