JGAP 3.0RC2 released

JGAP is a genetic algorithms package written in Java. It is designed to require minimum effort to use "out of the box", but is also designed to be highly modular. It allows custom components to be easily plugged in.
JGAP version 3.0 (Release Candidate 2) represents a major release introducing the long awaited Genetic Programming capabilities to JGAP, including a GP example.
We took the feedback from RC1 to enhance the current release and present it as Release Candidate 2.
As always, the javadocs have been improved, of course new unit tests have been added (we are counting over 1100), and a new example demonstrates custom randomized population initialization. The example was created due to a request on the jgap users list (we love getting feedback from you!).... read more

Genetic Programming added to JGAP

As an initial proposal, the package org.jgap.gp (accessible via CVS, directory gp-src) contains the logic for performing Genetic Programming evolutions. Package examples.gp in the same directory contains an example (formula finder).

Feedback about the new logic is very welcome!

JGAP is driven by over a 1000 test cases

The CVS version of JGAP now contains over a 1000 unit tests to ensure continuous improvement of code stability. The just released version 2.6 has some fewer test cases that is around 1000.

Are you test-infected, too? Then join the JGAP team!
