This paper describes the KRAFT architecture which supports the fusion of know- ledge from multiple, distributed, heterogeneous sources. The architecture uses constraints as a common knowledge interchange format, expressed against a com- mon ontology. Knowledge held in local sources can be tranformed into the com- mon constraint language, and fused with knowledge from other sources. The fused knowledge is then used to solve some problem or deliver some information to a user. Problem-solving in KRAFT typically exploits pre-existing constraint solvers. KRAFT uses an open and fle xible agent architecture in which knowledge sources, knowledge fusing entities, and users are all represented by independent KRAFT agents, communicating using a messaging protocol. Facilitator agents perform matchmaking and brokerage services between the various kinds of agent. KRAFT is being applied to an example application in the domain of network data services design.
