Add support for .NET 6 and Linux OS in CPLEX APIs

We developed a product based on .NET 6 that relies on CPLEX core functionalities and we need to make it run both on Windows an Linux operating systems. The .NET 6 libraries are platform independent but the CPLEX Optimization Studio only provides a...

Bring MATLAB interface back for CPLEX

Please bring back the MATLAB interface for CPLEX. We rely heavily on this feature since toolboxes we use are Matlab exclusive.

Replacement for DB Link to allow sensible database access from OPL

DB Link functionality was removed from version 12.7 and this prevents the sensible accessing of databases from OPL by removing the availability of DBConnection, DBRead, DBUpdate and DBExecute. Whilst there were various issues and bugs with the dat...

OPL model generation with multithreating

the OPL model generation uses only 1 core and it takes time.with a pre analysis of the model it could be possible to parallelize some of the model generation.

Support for mac M1 ARM

Need CPLEX native support for ARM based osx M1/M2 - A lot of developers use mac for development and going through the emulation option is not optimal

OPL interface for Matlab

Would be great to have not only a Matlab interface to CPLEX, but to OPL as well. It would facilitate. model deisgn (.mod) using OPL (way easier than working directly with CPLEX. model modification, re-run, post/pre-processing computations using a ...

IBM Z Common Data Provider template for the User Define SMF Record Type 249 cut by DVM

The customer is using IBM Z Common Data Provider (zCDP) to stream SMF records in real-time to their Splunk. zCDP provides policies for all the non user define SMF records, the SMF249 is a user define record, hence zCDP can't reference o it, so it ...

Interface between CPLEX and .Net CORE 5 on LINUX

We are developing applications using .Net CORE 5. This is a great language to develop solution on either Windows or Linux. We have no issues using CPLEX with Windows as we have the cp_wrap_cpp_dotnet2010.dll running but we miss a Linux version of ...

read solution from cpo file

For CP-Optimizer, it would be great to have the ability to read a given solution from a file and pass it to a cpo model as a starting point and also enable to check this solution feasibility

ODBCUpdate function needed

On the recent versions of cplex we have functions like ODBCRead and ODBCPublish for data management on Data bases engines, but it is also necessary to have a function like ODBCUpdate which corresponds to the old one DBUpdate function which allows ...
