First Experiments

In the last chapters, you have learnt a lot about the object-oriented ontogenetic programming system OOOPS and about the underlying paradigms and innovations, but you might say: "Nice ideas! But do they really work?" For proving that they actually work, I have performed some simple first experiments that do not take a long time to prepare and execute. Of course, this is not sufficient for supporting all the claims of the previous chapters, but it shows that the system and the paradigm can produce solutions for interesting distributed problems. There is a vast number of other experiments with very different problems from a variety of domains that can and will be carried out with OOOPS in future work. The goal of the here presented work was only to create the ideas and a system realizing these ideas.
