Based on couple of existing genetic algorithms library available on the
net, my team and I have come up with a design for the library. But we are
not able to understand how to validate the library -
Are there any test designs followed to test if a library is working
I would like to again mention that we are graduate students and have just
started working on Hadoop.
Thanks in advance,
