Hi I am using java with cplex

I am trying to maximize an equation and i want to consider the object even if it is a negative value.

I declared about my object variable like that

IloNumVar profit = cplex.numVar(0, Double.MAX_VALUE, "profit");

when i use this code the object value will be zero because it is negative

Do you have any suggestion to do that ?

You should not put a lower bound of zero on your variable if you want it to take negative values as well. I don't know the java-API but I could imagine it should look something like

IloNumVar profit = cplex.numVar(-IloInfinity, IloInfinity, "profit");

In the Java API, the way to represent infinity (signed) is Double.NEGATIVE_INFINITY or Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY.
