If nobody has time for this trivial issue perhaps somebody can pinpoint me to a site where I can find out the answer by myself. I tried in vain to find a definition for "web agent" on Google and on some sites that have an "IT dictionary". Any clue ?
Well it appears to be different things to different people. I would think of it as a "bot", or "spider". Something which goes onto the internet with a specific task. The most common example being how search engines find your web page. There appear to be other definitions though.

That means that a 'Web Agent' is not on a web server (like a 'Web Service'). It is a client technology that interacts with web servers in order to do data mining of some sort.
