Add TDNoOverlap constraint type to CP Optimizer

The TDNoOverlap constraint type is presented in chapter 7 of the Ph.D. thesis "A Constraint Programming Approach for the Time Dependent Traveling Salesman Problem", by Penelope Aguiar-Melgarejo https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-01514369/documen...

In OPL ODBC connection, add a setting for batch size

The prebuilt ODBCConnection allows OPL to access databases using ODBC. One way to optimize database access is to tune the execution batch size. With older versions of OPL that included DBLink, this was the dbUpdateBatchSize parameter.

Callbacks from CP for .Net languages like C#

Callbacks are available from CP using C++ or Java, but not if using the API from C# (or any .Net language). This seems to be very strange as the internal structures must be there inside the CP libraries etc in order to support the callbacks from C...

Enhance .NET API for maps

When attempting to use the reflection mechanism of OPL CPLEX API under .NET (version 12.9 but same problem seen in documentation of latest version), I stumble upon an error on my first implementation of a missing method "NbDim" for the map class "...

Allow initialisation using OPL of arrays within tuple sets

In OPL it is not possible to initialise an array which is within a set of tuples either through values or programmatically. An enhancement should be made to OPL to allow this. Consider: {string} Factors = {"a","b","c"}; tuple T_2 { key int i; int ...

sin function in OPL

tuple breakpoint // y=f(x) { float x; float y; } sorted { breakpoint } breakpoints={<i,exp(2*sin(i))> | i in 70..135}; I am trying to code this while because of no sin function in OPL, I am not able to code this on OPL.

OPL shall generate concert model with column API

OPL fails at building very large scale models due to the fact that it uses a "row api" of concert : Variables are created and added then to the range constraints. Unfortunately, such API can become dramatically slow for very large models, and bui...

saving data with a mouse-click instead of writing code through JDBC connector in CSV or other formats

I can currently browse it in the UI/IDE using the various inspectors. It would be nice if I could easily save this data to a file with a mouse click rather than having to write code, or add JDBC connections and rerun the model, etc. Typically what...

Human-readable status response

In the new multiobjective optimization support in CPLEX (Java API, but likely true in other APIs), querying status via IloCplex.getMultiObjInfo(IloCplex.MultiObjIntInfo.MultiObjStatus, ...) returns a numeric code (e.g. 107). This is difficult to i...

Add doopl in the CPLEX distribution on Watson Studio

relying on docplex python API got much easier since docplex was included in the CPLEX product. doopl which is a python package that allows to call OPL model from python code can be download from https://pypi.org/project/doopl/ but having doopl in ...
