We describe DAMLJessKB, a tool for reasoning with the DARPA Agent
Markup Language (DAML) and performing inference on the Semantic Web.
DAMLJessKB maps DAML's semantics into facts and rules for use in a
production system, such as the Java Expert System Shell (Jess).
This article presents our underlying methodology and provides a
detailed example of how DAMLJessKB can be used to make decisions about
DAML-encoded engineering design knowledge. We believe that tools
like DAMLJessKB are needed to help realize the full potential of the
Semantic Web and DAML.
