11.1. Overview
11.2. Evolutionary Strategies
11.3. Genetic Algorithms

Evolutionary algorithms work on a population of solutions and evolve that population.

A good Genetic Algorithms prototype in OptaPlanner has been written, but it wasn't practical to merge and support at the time. The results of Genetic Algorithms were consistently and seriously inferior to all the Local Search variants (except Hill Climbing) on all use cases tried. Nevertheless, a future version of OptaPlanner will add support for Genetic Algorithms, so you can easily benchmark genetic algorithms on your use case too.
