    	abstract =	{Information agents are cooperative agents whose main goal
    	is to collaborate and assist task agents like mobile agents in
    	obtaining information from heterogenous data sources. This study sets
    	out to find the practical problems that a developer might encounter in
    	the process of engineering an information agent in the context of a
    	real estate agent based application. In our research, we investigated
    	the practicality of constructing an information agent based on existing
    	tools available in the marketplace. We enumerate the practical issues
    	that one will face in the engineering of such an agent in a mobile
    	agent HomeBot application. We also set out in here some suggested
    	techniques in overcoming them. Our contention is that the construction
    	of an information agent is feasible but tedious, but more importantly
    	what is needed is an integrated tool that is yet missing and is not
    	provided for in the community, somethng agent tool builders should
    	address immediately.},
