OptaPlanner 6.3 will support bi-directional variables for non-chained planning variables too. If A points to B, then B points to A. Even as planning variables get modified during planning, that principle stays true.

+Osamu Kuniyasu yes, applying this to CloudBalancing means that the Computer instances are cloned too during a planning clone. In fact, they become a shadow entity (= a planning entity with only shadow variables).

The ComputerAssignment workaround has the problem that you don't know how many ComputerAssignment instances to create. Dealing with a non fixed number of entities is possible in theory, but a big pain in practice.

Scaling the Vehicle Routing Problem above 1000 customers with Nearby Selection in OptaPlanner 6.2.
#orms #vrp #OptaPlanner
OptaPlanner 6.2 has made big step forward for the Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP), Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) and similar use cases. The new feature nearby selection enables it to scale to bigger problems much more efficiently without sacrificing potential optimal solutions (which is common for inferior techniques). Let’s take a closer look at nearby...

3 Bugs in The Ultimate American Road Trip of The Washington Post
http://www.optaplanner.org/blog/2015/03/20/3BugsInTheUltimateAmericanRoadTrip.html
Earlier this week, The Washington Post published an article about how a data genius has computed the ultimate American road trip. The only problem…​ it contains several mistakes! It’s not the optimal route, nor the shortest route, nor the fastest route. Let’s take a look at the problems and how we can fix...

New Blog: Visualizing an #OptaPlanner Vehicle Routing solution with Leaflet (OpenStreetMaps) and Google Maps
http://www.optaplanner.org/blog/2015/03/10/VisualizingVehicleRoutingWithLeafletAndGoogleMaps.html
After OptaPlanner finds the best solution for a Vehicle Routing Problem, users usually want to see it on a real map, such as Google Maps or OpenStreetMap. The optaplanner-webexamples.war for OptaPlanner 6.3 now demonstrates that. Visualization In the case below, I’ve solved a VRP problem with 50 locations and 8 vehicles and projected the best...

How fast is logging in #java?
What's the impact of logging levels and console/file appenders?
What’s the cost of trace/debug logging in production? What’s the performance cost of logging to a file? In these benchmarks, I compare the performance impact of logging levels (error, warn, info, debug, trace) and logging appenders (console appender, file appender) on several realistic OptaPlanner use cases. Benchmark methodology Logging implementation: SFL4J 1.7.2 with Logback 1.0.9...

OptaPlanner lead
Introduction
I am the lead for OptaPlanner (java, open source) and I work for Red Hat.


OptaPlanner optimizes business resource usage. Every organization faces planning problems: provide products or services with a limited set of constrained resources (employees, assets, time and money). OptaPlanner optimizes such planning to do more business with less resources.

OptaPlanner is a lightweight, embeddable planning engine written in Java™. It helps normal Java™ programmers solve constraint satisfaction problems efficiently. Under the hood, it combines optimization heuristics and metaheuristics with very efficient score calculation.

OptaPlanner is open source software, released under the Apache Software License. It is 100% pure Java™, runs on any JVM and is available in the Maven Central Repository too.
