  Description     : library providing Java bindings for lp_solve, via JNI

<p>lp_solve is a  linear(integer) programming solver based on the revised simplex method and the Branch-and-bound method
for the integers. 

This library is designed to provide easy access to the lp_solve API
from Java. It consists of two main parts:

- A Java class library that is used by Java client programs. It gives access to all
  lp_solve routines through the <code>LpSolve</code> class.</li>

- A native library written in C++, also called 'stub' library, that uses the JNI
  (Java Native Interface) API to translate Java method calls into calls to the
  corresponding routines of the lp_solve library.


- I would be quite happy if someone (lp_solve maintainers?) wanted to take this over, or co-maintain
- Alternatively, I would probably join pkg-java
- Preliminary packaging (that has many policy problems, but does apparently) can be found at

  or clone from
