We suggested an Intelligent Agent Framework that supports agent function extension. Main concern of research in Intelligent Agent has been the enhancement of intelligence. The proposed framework shows a new approach of function extension using the concept of behavior delegation. We define new behavior description language, BDL, which enables users to assemble agent functions without programming. Function configuration and other information are loaded into the framework to create agents dynamically at starting time. All behaviors in agent are executed on external servers using SOAP dynamic binding through Dynamic Invocation Framework. A reference application, the Intelligent Price Finder, is designed and implemented using the proposed framework.
