* Package name    : jel
  Version         : 2.0.1
  Upstream Author : Konstantin Metlov <metlov@kinetic.ac.donetsk.ua>

  Description     : library for evaluating algebraic expressions in Java

The JEL library enables users to enter algebraic expressions into their
programme. Since JEL converts expressions directly into Java bytecode,
it significantly speeds up their evaluation time. If the user's Java
virtual machine has a JIT compiler, expressions are transparently
compiled into native machine code.

JEL may be a very useful tool for a variety of applications in science
involving user-defined functions, e.g. to create plots, to apply fits
to a data set and to solve integrals or differential equations.
Another relevant use case for JEL is given by algebraic operations
between two or more columns of a database table.

Were the overheads of loading a JVM, compiling an expression to java bytecode, 
considered?
I ask because i doubt there can be any speed up at all.

Hi Florian,

a maintenance in the Debian Science team comes to mind.

Kind regards

       Andreas.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of jel back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting jel, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 661824 ITP: jel -- library for evaluating algebraic expressions in Java
 owner 661824 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <661824@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
