Internet enabled auctions are one of the popular application which basically require a web service discovery mechanism that is efficient in all perspectives. This paper focuses on auction service discovery and building repository of services for the use of E-customers. The auction service directory (repository) is developed based on the customer's desires. Agent based Belief Desire Intention (BDI) architecture is used in this model, not only to support the service discovery process in spotty or no connectivity network environment but also to automate the process so that it enables the mobile users to complete the discovery process successfully without continuous on-line presence. The simulation results depict that the performance parameters like customer satisfaction, availability of requested services and stability in fetching the services are better in the proposed service discovery model as compared to auction based advertisement facilitated service discovery mechanism.
