Since 2004, we are developping a software plaform, called FluidExponents which fully implements the MMF. FluidExponents serves different purposes and share interesting characteristics:
FluidExponents is entirely written Java, and it implements all core MMF functionalities,
it comes in two separate entities: a set of Java libraries for development, and a user interface for interacting with the constructs defined from the MMF,
it is composed of around 100 000 lines of Java code,
it serves as the basis development platform in GEOSTAT.
The use of FluidExponents in GEOSTAT is systematic: all new research results (coming from PhDs for instance) are implemented within it. Functionalities that have a strong potential are implemented in the standard version of FluidExponents.
We show, in figure 6 , a session of FluidExponents using the user interface.
In GEOSTAT, we have the strong intention of consideraly developping the FluidEponents platform, for dissemination and research:
A lighter version of FluidExponents is developped to be diffused in the scientific community, for disseminating the implementation and use of the MMF (mainly in the geophysics community),
We are currently in the process of making a deposit of FluidExponents.
We are currently in the process of understanding and specification, with our spanish partner, of a commercial implementation and use of FluidExponents, through the possibilities offered by INRIA on the creation of start-ups.
