Dominion : an architecture-driven approach to generating efficient constraint solvers
MetadataShow full item record
Constraints are used to solve combinatorial problems in a variety of industrial and academic disciplines. However most constraint solvers are designed to be general and monolithic, leading to problems with efficiency, scalability and extensibility. We propose a novel, architecture-driven constraint solver generation framework called Dominion to tackle these issues. For any given problem, Dominion generates a lean and efficient solver tailored to that problem. In this paper, we outline the Dominion approach and its implications for software architecture specification of the solver.
