Our mission

Constraint programming is helpful, but it seems reserved to some elite able to understand complex constraint programming languages. We believe in an approach with no impedance mismatch between buisness objects and constraints definition.

We intend to provide a generic Java implementation of the Adaptative Search Algorithm, which offers interesting performance promises.
The API will rely on pattern language (avoiding programmers to learn one more constraint language), with respect of type safety (no typecasts whenever possible).
The samples will be an important part of the releases, since we address to non-specialists of constraint programming.
A graphical monitoring tool will help understanding the behavior of the engine, for pedagogical and optimization purposes.

Our vision

We hope WASA to become a pedagogical support for showing what the stochastic approach for constraint programming can do. We hope it to be a useful tool for real-world problems as well.
