The agent-oriented software engineering methodology Tropos offers a structured development process and supporting tools for developing complex, distributed systems.
 The objective of this paper is twofold: first, to illustrate the use of Tropos to develop a Multi-Agent System, performing basic analysis and design activities, code generation and testing, with the support of a set of tools; second, to enable the comparison with other, tool-supported, agent-oriented software engineering methodologies through a description of the main steps of these activities and of excerpts of the resulting artefacts, with reference to a common case study, namely, the Conference Management System case study.
