Class Solve

  extended by org.moeaframework.util.CommandLineUtility
      extended by org.moeaframework.analysis.tools.Solve

public class Solve
extends CommandLineUtility

Command line utility for solving an optimization problem using any of the supported optimization algorithms. This utility supports solving problems defined within the MOEA Framework as well as compatible external problems. See ExternalProblem for details on developing an external problem.

Usage: java -cp "..." org.moeaframework.analysis.sensitivity.ResultFileEvaluator <options>

Arguments:

-f, --output The output file location.
-b, --problem The name of the problem. This name should reference one of the problems recognized by the MOEA Framework.
-a, --algorithm The name of the algorithm. This name should reference one of the algorithms recognized by the MOEA Framework.
-x, --properties Semicolon-separated list of additional parameters for the algorithm (e.g., -x maxEvaluations=10000;populationSize=100.
-s, --seed The random number seed used for each run.
-e, --epsilon The epsilon values for limiting the size of the results. This epsilon value is also used for any algorithms that include an epsilon parameter.
-n, --numberOfEvaluations The number of function evaluations (NFE) to run.
-F, --runtimeFrequency The frequency, in NFE, that records are saved to the output file
-v, --variables Comma-separated list of decision variable specifications. Use "R(<lb>;<ub>)" for real-valued, "B(<length>)" for binary, and "P(<length>)" for permutations.
-o, --objectives The number of objectives.
-c, --constraints The number of constraints.
-l, --lowerBounds Lower bounds of real-valued decision variables, separated by commas.
-u, --upperBounds Upper bounds of real-valued decision variables, separated by commas.
-S, --useSocket Communicate with external problem using sockets.
-H, --hostname Hostname used when using sockets (default localhost)
-P, --port Port used when using sockets (default 16801).
-D, --startupDelay Delay in seconds between running the executable and starting optimization (default 1).
-t, --test Runs a few trials to test the connection with the external problem.

Returns the options made available by this command line utility. The base implementation automatically provides the -h,--help option. Implementations overriding this method and begin with a call to super.getOptions().

Overrides:
getOptions in class CommandLineUtility
Returns:
the options made available by this command line utility

run

public void run(org.apache.commons.cli.CommandLine commandLine)
         throws IOException
Description copied from class: CommandLineUtility
Runs this command line utility with the specified command line arguments.

Specified by:
run in class CommandLineUtility
Parameters:
commandLine - the command line arguments
Throws:
IOException

main

public static void main(String[] args)
                 throws Exception
Starts the command line utility for solving an optimization problem.

Parameters:
args - the command line arguments
Throws:
Exception - if an error occurred
