Electronic Brokering is a good candidate for taking up Semantic Web technology. In this paper we study the brokering and matchmaking problem that is, how a requester's requirements and preferences can be matched against a set of offerings collected by a broker. The proposed solution uses the Semantic Web standard of RDF to represent the offerings, and a deductive logical language, based on non-monotonic reasoning, for expressing the requirements and preferences. We motivate and explain the approach we propose, and report on a prototypical implementation exhibiting the described functionality, in JADE agent environment.
