Using the GUI

From the GUI, also called the EVA workbench, all important components of an optimization run can be accessed and configured. To change the optimization method, for example, click on the field labeled with ``optimizer'' and select the desired algorithm from the drop-down menu. Basically, you thereby select a Java class and create an instance, whose public properties are displayed in the window immediately with their standard values. For your optimization run, you may configure the parameter values directly through the input fields. A short description will be displayed by tip-text above the name of each parameter. If you just hit the ``Start'' button, an optimization will be started using the current settings.

The EVA GUI has two main tabs: the optimization parameter tab and the statistics tab (Fig. 2.3.1), the components of which will be summarized in the following.
