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...

Tuning Tool should work for CP as well as CPLEX

The Tuning Tool only works for CPLEX. It should also be made to work for CP.

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...

add doopl in the CPLEX distribution

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 ...

Produce log during OPL Extract phase similar to Solve Engine Log

Many OPL real-world optimisations spend a large proportion of the overall solve time performing extraction/generation and there is no log of what is happening during this time. There should be a log produced during Extract similar to the Engine Lo...

Nonlinear solver for CPLEX

Add nonlinear optimization capability to CPLEX. Many real-life models are nonlinear by nature. CPLEX solver requires a linear model to work. A good nonlinear solver can often times overperform a linearized form of a real-life model. Having a nonli...

OPL language enhancements : cannot slice with nested constraints on subTuples

I've been a happy user of OPL language, which has lots of wonderful features. However, there is one remaining recurrent issue in data modeling, which prevents some intuitive modeling. This is called "cannot slice with nested constraints on subTupl...

CPLEX object create by oplrun and concert shall be equal

the CPLEX object created by an OPL model is not the same as tyhe CPLEX object created with concert technology.It creates limitation and complexity that prevent people to use OPL in many cases, such advance algorithms with call backs manual cuts......

Extend CPLEX for Matlab to support the Matlab Compiler

CPLEX for MATLAB is an extension to IBM® ILOG® CPLEX Optimizers that allows a user to define optimization problems and solve them within MATLAB's development environment. However, an optimisation module developped with CPLEX for MATLAB and compile...
