Service selection is an important issue for market-oriented Grid infrastructures. However, few results have been published on the use and evaluation of market models in deployed prototypes, making it difficult to assess their capabilities. In this paper we study the integration of an extended version of Zero Intelligence Plus (ZIP) agents in a middleware for economics-based selection of Grid services. The advantages of these agents compared to alternatives is their fairly simple messaging protocol and negotiation strategy. By deploying the middleware on several machines and running experiments we observed that services are proportionally assigned to competing traders as should be in a fair market. Furthermore, varying the environmental conditions we show that the agents are able to respond to the varying environmental constraints by adapting their market prices.
