Choco (Constraint Programming in Java)

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Date: Mon, 15 Sep 2008 21:19:33 -0400 (CLT)

I've been looking around Choco, which has just (10 Sept) had a new major
version release.  It has a new site, and the following seem to be the main
(English language) links:

Main site - http://choco.emn.fr/

White paper (good intro, covers basic architecture, includes an example) -
http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/lib/exe/fetch.php?id=presentation&cache=cache&media=pdf:choco-presentation.pdf

Download (the source download includes the compiled jar, but not the
samples or javadocs) -
http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=download

Tutorial:
Introduction - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=introduction
Model - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=model
Solver - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=solver
Constraints - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=constraints
Advanced - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=advanced

(The advanced section includes info on, for example, defining your own
constraints, but some other sections are incomplete).

FAQ - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=faq
Exercises - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=exercises
Solutions - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=solutions

Licence - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/doku.php?id=bsd_licence

Forum (popular) - http://sourceforge.net/forum/?group_id=96738
New forum - http://www.emn.fr/x-info/choco-solver/forum/

AVOID the info at http://choco-solver.net since this appears to be mainly
pre-2.0 (anything that refers to the "Problem" class).  Also, note the lib
requires Java 6 (at least for compilation) - see
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=2228414&forum_id=335512
