We describe a de-centralised approach to resource management and discovery, based on a community of interacting software agents. Each agent either represents a user application, a resource, or a MatchMaking service. The proposed approach can support dynamic registration of resources and user tasks, facilitating the establishment of dynamic clusters. Resource capability and task requirements are described using an object based data model, enabling new types of devices or new features in existing devices to be identified. A comparison with the Discovery and LookUp services in Jini and TSpaces is also provided.
