This pro ject aims at developing a dialect for the Java programming language, implementing the Constraint Programming paradigm over a distributed network of inexpensive workstations. We developed a model for the representation of CSPs (Constraint Satisfaction Problems), susceptible of being efficently implemented in a network-aware ob ject-oriented programming language, such as Java. This model was the ob ject of a prototype implementation on a distributed system, which was to be made up of a cluster of 16 nodes, which will extend the presently existing cluster of 8 nodes. There are two prototypes: a sequential and a parallel one.
Started in July 2002 and was concluded in 2005.
