A-Match is a matchmaking system that allows agents to enter and exit the system dynamically. It employs a Matchmaker to support agents in the system in their exchange of services. A-Match lets human users interact with the Matchmaker: through the A-Match users find agents that can provide needed services or advertise new agents. The functionality of the A-Match is displayed in the context of the Warren System, a system that supports the user to manage its own stock portfolio.
