Many real-world applications on the Internet require accessing database information and typical technology employed is client/server plus Web (C/S + Web). Although past few years saw many success applications by using this technique, there are still some drawbacks that need to be overcome. One of the drawbacks is that the transaction often fails if the network connection is unstable. Another disadvantage is high bandwidth requirement and latency. This paper argues that mobile agent technology provide an easy way to overcome the shortcomings in CIS + Web in database access on the Internet. A success case study using mobile agents to admit new students to China's institutions is then presented. The mobile agent was created by using IBM's Aglets Software Development Kit (SDK). Based on the experimental results, it is evident that mobile agent technology is well suited for such applications.
