XCSP3 and its ecosystem

Abstract : In this paper, we present a summary of XCSP3, together with its ecosystem. XCSP3 is a format used to build integrated representations of combinatorial constrained problems. Interestingly, XCSP3 preserves the structure of models, by handling arrays of variables and groups/blocks of constraints, which makes it rather unique in the literature. Furthermore, the ecosystem of XCSP3 is well supplied: it includes companion tools (parsers and checkers), a website with a search engine for selecting and downloading instances, and competitions of solvers. The Java-based modeling API, called JvCSP3, is the last developed piece of this complete production chain.
