About the source code and the implementation (Java)

  • To use the implementation:
    			java -jar satibea.jar fmDimacs timeMS
    For instance, the command
    			java -jar satibea.jar 3600000
    runs the approach on the Linux feature model with an execution time of one hour (3600000 milliseconds).
    Note: the .augment, .dead, .mandatory and .richseed files (that can be found in the section below) should be in the same directory as the feature model. Thus, along with the feature model used in the command above are the files,,,,
