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...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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...

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.

Add support for Java 11 in CPLEX java API

Currently, CPLEX and CPO provide a java API to the engines. This API currently supports Java 8 (IBM SDK and Oracle Java). A more recent versions of Java with LTS is Java 11 - It would be nice if CPLEX Optimization studio officially supports Java 1...

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...

Interface between CPLEX and FORTRAN

Since FORTRAN is one of the TOP20 programming languages in the TIOBE index (https://www.tiobe.com/tiobe-index/), I suggest that IBM create mixed-integer linear programming models with CPLEX and FORTRAN. I have not found a library similar to Concer...

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 "...
