New model architecture

Added by Samuel Dufour-Kowalski about 12 years ago

Since november 2009, Capsis supports a new model architecture. This new architecture intends to :

  • Reduce the number of necessary classes.
  • Simplify the implementation of the model
  • Support automatic graphical user interface
  • Support automation to replay a scenario and do some variation on the parameters

The main differences with the previous architecture are:

  • Relay classes are optional : there is a default implementation
  • Settings and initial parameters are merged into a single class
  • Script mode is supported by default
  • Parameter classes and gui classes are separated

Documentation is available on the capsis website :
