The 3 years OADymPPaC project ended may 2004.

The expected impacts of the project were of three kinds: new results in constraint program development and debugging, and visualization of dynamic phenomena; improvement of the industrial and academic platforms: constraint solvers and their tools for constraint program development and modules of visualization, enhancement of several platforms (GNU-Prolog, PaLM, Choco, CHIP); contribution to the teaching of the programming with constraints.

All results (reports and systems) may be found at the project URL:
