Most existing agent-oriented methodologies ignore system extensibility, interoperability and reusability issues. In light of this, we have developed MOBMAS – a “Methodology for Ontology-Based MASs” which makes use of ontologies as a central modeling tool, utilising their roles in facilitating interoperability and reusability. As part of an ongoing validation of MOBMAS, we demonstrate in this paper its use on a peer-to-peer (P2P) community-based information sharing application. MOBMAS is used by an experienced software developer, who is not an author of the methodology, to guide the development of the P2P application.
