We propose a complex market-oriented programming framework based on the economics of complex systems, and develop a complex artificial market with multi-agent paradigm in this paper. Three types of heterogeneous agents are defined in the complex artificial market. It is confirmed that their interactions with micro behaviour emerge a macro order of the artificial market, and the clearing price dynamism can be analysed in economic terms. The applicability of the framework into resource allocation problem for B2B commerce is also discussed.
