Constraint programming (CP) is a young but rapidly developing technology that supports the modeling and solution of a wide range of planning, scheduling, search, and optimization problems. The integration of CP concepts into languages from other paradigms yields constraint-based multiparadigm programming. This article briefly introduces the constraint-based paradigm and discusses methods, problems, gains, and experiences in integrating CP techniques into the object-oriented paradigm, using Java as an example.
