The Internet becomes part of our lives. Users can access different kinds of information through the Internet. However, the exponential growth of the Internet led to a great problem: difficult to locate relevant information. The Semantic Web is an extension of the current web system in which information is organized in a well-defined manner and for enabling computers and people to work in cooperation. Agent technology gives a new way to this intelligent web system. In this paper, we proposed an innovative agent platform – Ontia iJADE which supports the Semantic Web Service. Ontia iJADE contains an ontology Server known as intelligent Java-based ontology Server (IJAOS), which stores and manages the ontology information for agents to share and reuse.
