In this paper we describe JCLEC, a Java software system for the development of evolutionary computation applications. This system has been designed as a framework, applying design patterns to maximize its reusability and adaptability to new paradigms with a minimum of programming effort. JCLEC architecture comprises three main modules: the core contains all abstract type definitions and their implementation; experiments runner is a scripting environment to run algorithms in batch mode; finally,

The use of JCLEC system is illustrated though the analysis of one case study: the resolution of the 0/1 knapsack problem by means of evolutionary algorithms.
