Additionally, he writes technical articles about Genetic Algorithms, Genetic Programming, Object-Orientation and other aspects of software development for various German magazines and the SAP Developer Network. In June, 2006, his book about JUnit, the testing framework, was published.

JGAP is his main activity besides dissertation and regular job, on which he spends much time to make JGAP a unique experience when it comes to Genetic Algorithms, Genetic Programming and Grid Computing.

Javier Meseguer
Enrique D. Martí

Javier and Enrique put bits & bytes together to use JGAP for evolving Robocode robots with GP. For that, JGAP is "asked" to produce full-blown Java source code that is compiled and evaluated at run-time. Great work, dudes!

Not enough with that, Javier helped a lot improving JGAP by bringing in new ideas and inspirations to the project.

Audrius Meskauskas


Advisor, Developer Dr. Audrius Meskauskas is an academic researcher, participating in various projects of system biology, including models of signal transmission, systems of bioinformatical web robots, sequence analysis and three dimensional morphogenesis. Together with colleagues from Manchester University, Oxford University, Ulm University and Institute of Botany in Vilnius he published multiple scientific works.

He sees JGAP as a highly interesting application of biological conceptions in informatics. Audrius implements modules, based mainly on the current knowledge of molecular genetics (supergenes, etc).

Jerry Vos


.NET contributor Jerry ported the Java version of JGAP to Microsoft .NET. You can find the .NET version of JGAP in the files section.

Neil Rotstan

Founder of JGAP Neil is the founder of JGAP laying ground of the architecture and bringing the project to life. Currently, Neil is no longer involved with JGAP due to time constraints.

From Livejournal: Neil is a software engineer who spends his days staring at a dim computer screen and banging his head against his desk. When not at work, he can usually be found at a martial-arts studio where he studies kempo-karate and is learning to become an assistant instructor.
