Verson 1.0-exp10 has been released. It adds two new "helper" classes
ComplexMove and ComplexTabuList to aid in cases where
multiple attributes are being tracked in the tabu list.
OpenTS is a java tabu search framework that helps you implement the popular
tabu search meta-heuristic in a well-defined, object-oriented design.
Among the key advantages of this framework:
Works with any problem type.
You can solve vehicle routing problems, assignment problems, or your
favorite packing problem. OpenTS makes no assumptions about the type
of problem you may solve.
Offloads repetitive tabu search functions.
You can define your problem and your ideal tabu search and
leave the grunt work to OpenTS.
Logically organizes your tabu search.
You can better explain and understand your tabu search when
it follows the well-structured design of the OpenTS framework.
Exploits modern computer technology.
You can take advantage of object-oriented programming and the
cross-platform Java language including the ability to use
multi-processor computers and deliver applications over the Internet.
Integrates goal programming.
You can evaluate solutions in more than one dimension and compare
solutions first by comparing the most important value, then the second,
the third and so on.
