  abstract =     "This paper deals with the need for generic software
                 development tools in evolutionary computations (EC).
                 These tools will be essential for the next generation
                 of evolutionary algorithms where application designers
                 and researchers will need to mix different combinations
                 of traditional EC (e.g. genetic algorithms, genetic
                 programming, evolutionary strategies, etc.), or to
                 create new variations of these EC, in order to solve
                 complex real world problems. Six basic principles are
                 proposed to guide the development of such tools. These
                 principles are then used to evaluate six freely
                 available, widely used EC software tools. Finally, the
                 design of Open BEAGLE, the framework developed by the
                 authors, is presented in more detail.",
