The ojAlgo LP/QP/MIP solvers are designed for when you need a pure Java solver for a smaller/simpler problem. Today the best commercial solvers (typically not written i Java) are very capabale. ojAlgo can not compete with them. On the other hand, in many cases, a commercial solver is total overkill. There's a huge set of use cases where something like ojAlgo is a better choice. The ojAlgo solvers have been around for years - particularly the QP solver. It dates back to the very beginning of ojAlgo 10 years ago. Among the current test cases the only thing that doesn't work is semi continuous variables in MPS files/models. (This feature simply isn't supported at the moment.) Difficult MIP models is one area where a commercial solver will seriously outperform ojAlgo. ojAlgo can solve several cases from the Mixed Integer Problem Library (MIPLIB) but is significantly slower than commercial alternatives.
