1.could you please tell me how to code Agents with explicit  ontologies ?

If the ontologies are expressed in a machine-readable syntax, the agent can read, interpret, reason, and execute over any of them (e.g., OWL, XML Schema) -- assuming you program you agent to interpret the chosen syntax.

The question quite clearly stated “code agents with explicit ontologies”.  Isn’t reasoning going beyond this?  Interpreting is different from parsing.  We all should have learned this with XML.  XML has nothing to do with semantics although 99% of people who read XML think it is semantically meaningful.

My take:

  1. pick a formal ontology _expression_ language
  2. build a parser (reader)
  3. anything else (reasoning engines, inference machines et al) can use 1 and 2
