The Semantic Web aims at making Web content understandable both for people and machines. Although intelligent agents can assist towards this vision, they do not have to conform to a common rule or logic paradigm. This paper reports on the first steps towards a framework for interoperating knowledge-based intelligent agents. A multi-agent system was extended with defeasible reasoning and a reusable agent model is proposed for customizable agents, equipped with a knowledge base and a Jess rule engine. Two use case scenarios display the integration of these technologies.
