In this paper, a novel agent-based ontology integration framework is developed for agents which consume ontologies in ontology-based applications as well as engage in tasks of ontology integration. The corresponding ontology integration mechanism is discussed. Derived ontologies can be reused in the system. A prototype is built by using the JADE agent platform for evaluation.
