A solution called the DeepSpot agent toolbox for rapidly generating intelligent agents that serve as Web wrappers for Web information integration is discussed. With this solution, Web wrapper agent can be easily maintained without skillfull programmers. An XML-based script language called the Web Navigation Description Language is designed when developing the DeepSpot Agent Toolbox. The toolbox can successfully applied in several real-world projects including a bioinformatics application, which demonstrates how an agent can automate a complex browsing session and a large-scale e-government information integration task that involves thousands of Web wrapper agents.
