public interface TerminationCondition<V extends Variable<V,T>,T extends Value<V,T>>

Termination condition.

The termination condition determines when the algorithm should finish. For example, the solver should terminate when the maximal number of iterations or some other given timeout value is reached. Moreover, it can stop the search process when the current solution is good enough, e.g., all variables are assigned and/or some other solution parameters are in the required ranges. For example, the solver can stop when all variables are assigned and less than 10% of the soft constraints are violated. Termination of the process by the user can also be a part of the termination condition.
