Why another Modelica open source project?

JModelica.org offers unique features and design choices based on well known technology such as Java, Ecplise, and Python. JModelica.org is based on recognized open source licenses. JModelica.org is more directed towards optimization analysis of Modelica models than other Modelica tools. Already the fundamental architecture of JModelica is designed to support state-of-the-art optimization methods and solvers. The compiler design is extensible with an easy to use Java compiler interface. The Optimica extension offers powerful formulation of optimization problems in Modelica.
