We present our practical experience in implementing an agent-based system for provision and selection of Grid services. The agents form a marketplace where services are offered and searched. Agents communicate semantic information about services using OWL-S. We describe our implementation that is built on Globus Toolkit 3, the JADE agent framework and an OWL-S toolkit. This combination of technologies can be used for more sophisticated agent-based services, such as automatic composition of services. We illustrate and evaluate our framework using a simple example, yet without loosing generality. Our preliminary evaluation captures the relative costs of different stages during service provision and selection, and detects potential bottlenecks.
