Thanks, but there is no loop in the method evolve() of my EvolutionState.java.

public int evolve()

        throws InternalError, FileNotFoundException, IOException,
Exception { return R_NOTDONE; }


The same for SimpleEvolutionState.java


This loop (varying the children/individuals) is exactly what I'm looking for.

Best,
Márcio
