Autonomous entities in a digital ecosystem are expected to interact, negotiate and make agreements. The work introduced in this paper focuses on how these autonomous entities evaluate and rank the other participants in the digital ecosystem using past experiences. These past experiences allow agents to learn a probabilistic model of the behaviour of the others. We introduce a trust measure based on this probabilistic model of behaviour and a software tool that helps in the decision making process of how to choose the right partner for our next agreemeent.
