I am a researcher on Complex Event Recognition and I use
Java along with Prolog for my current experiments. More specifically, I
have built a Java application that, among other things, uses a Prolog engine to
execute queries and perform logical inference. I have been using the new
JPL 7 library in order to import a SWI Prolog engine in this Java
I would like to repeat my experiments,
using YAP Prolog this time, but I am facing difficulties. It is
mentioned in YAP Prolog's documentation that YAP Prolog can be used to
interact with Java via the JPL library. However, I struggle to find in
JPL7's documentation the way of switching from SWI to YAP.
I have spotted a couple of methods, such as
but the accompanying javadoc/documentation is anything but verbose, thus making it difficult for me to understand if these methods are what I need to switch to YAP and how to call them properly.
So, first of all, can I create and use an instance of a YAP engine inside a Java program using JPL 7? If so, can anyone provide some more specific information on how to do it?
Thank you in advance.
