In this work we describe the Agent World Editor, a graphical editor that supports the development and validation of multi-agent systems in JIAC V. For the development of this editor, which complies with the OSGi technology, a model-driven approach was used. Concepts that support the developer to design multi-agent systems in JIAC V have been developed as well. Developers do not need to configure their systems by hand, but can model them in a graphical manner. Errors are detected at design time, and the adaptive user interface offers additional guidance in the development process.
