JASA

Java Auction Simulator API

JASA is a high-performance auction simulator. It is designed for performing experiments in agent-based computational economics. It implements variants of the double-auction market, which is commonly used to run real-world market places such as stock exchanges. It is designed to be highly extensible so that other types of auctions can easily be implemented. The software also provides a base classes for implementing simple adaptive trading agents. It is built on top of the Java Agent-Based Modelling (JABM) toolkit.
