The communication and cooperation of agents is one of the key features of the multi-agent systems theory. In this work we discuss how the agents can communicate by means of applying a domain-specific ontology for the purpose of retrieval of similar architectural designs. The domain ontology and the corresponding communication patterns are parts of the communication architecture of the distributed case-based retrieval system MetisCBR. We also present a vision of the explanation component that enhances the existing architecture with own patterns and concepts and recognizes corresponding contexts in search results.
