Eclipse Programming

Eclipse is a free, open-source integrated development environment that you can use to develop Java programs, as well as programs in other languages. This tutorial assumes that you already have Eclipse installed on your computer. The purpose of this tutorial is to help you navigate Eclipse and to show off a few of its many features.

What is ECLiPSe?

Eclipse coder

Eclipse Programming Tool

ECLiPSeis an open-source software system for the cost-effective development and deploymentof constraint programming applications, the areas of planning, scheduling, resource allocation,timetabling, transport etc.It is also ideal for teaching most aspects of combinatorial problemsolving, e.g. problem modelling, constraint programming,mathematical programming, and search techniques.It contains several constraint solver libraries,a high-level modelling and control language,interfaces to third-party solvers,an integrated development environmentand interfaces for embedding into host environments.

Eclipse is a open-source application made by the Eclipse Foundation to help you write java better and it has become the most popular java editor. If you are having trouble getting eclipse for your system here's how you do it. Eclipse is also used for C and C development as well as PHP among the other programming languages. Eclipse IDE is written in Java. It mainly consists of a base ‘workspace’ and a plug-in system so that we can add more plugins and extend the functionality of the IDE.


New Paper

January 2021: Paper in AAAI 2020 onImproved filtering for the Euclidean Traveling Salesperson Problem in CLP(FD)by Bertagnon&Gavanelli.

MiniZinc Update

July 2018: Build 7.0#43 comes with updatedMiniZinc/FlatZinc interface libraries (these were initiallyreleased in Feb'08 as one of the first complete implementations of theMiniZinc modellinglanguage, and allow ECLiPSe users to use MiniZinc together with ECLiPSe'sconstraint solvers. Furthermore,MiniZinc models can be embedded into ECLiPSe code in order to adduser-defined search and I/O facilities to the models).

ICLP Best Paper Award for ECLiPSe-based application paper

July 2011: The application paperOptimal Placement of Valves in a Water Distribution Network with CLP(FD) fetched the Best Paper Award at the ICLP 2011 conference.It explains an application of CLP(FD) to a problem in hydraulicengineering that was developed in ECLiPSe. Congratulations toMarco Gavanelli (a frequent contributor on our mailing list) and hiscolleagues!


The ECLiPSe Text Book

The bookConstraint Logic Programming using ECLiPSeby Krzysztof Apt and Mark Wallace is a practical introduction to constraint programming and to ECLiPSe,with many examples, appropriate for self study or a one-semester course.

Open-Sourcing and Release 5.10


ECLiPSe was open-sourced by Cisco under aMozilla-style Public Licence in September 2006.The official source repository and other development resources are at first release made from the open source was release 5.10.
