Argumentation is becoming increasingly important in the design and implementation of autonomous software agents. We believe that agents engaged in decision-making and reasoning should have access to a general purpose argumentation engine that can be configured to conform to one of a range of semantics. In this paper we discuss our current work on a prototype light-weight Java-based argumentation engine that can be used to implement a non-monotonic reasoning component in Internet or agent-based applications.
