Semantic Web society was initially focused only on data, but then gradually moved toward knowledge. If a vision of the Semantic Web is to enhance humans' decision-making assisted by machines, a missing but important part is knowledge about constraints on data and concepts represented by ontology. This paper proposes a Semantic Web Constraint Language (SWCL) based on OWL, and shows its effectiveness in representing and solving an internet shopper's decision-making problems by implementing a shopping agent in the Semantic Web environment.
