Hello all, This semester, I am teaching a class about meta heuristic algorithm (GA, ant colony, SA, PSO, Tabu search, ...). I am wondering if there is any solver or software for meta heuristic algorithm. The only way is the implementation? Thank you. asked 30 Nov '16, 05:37 Gitae 
There are several solver that use metaheuristics:

If you are willing to do some Java coding, I can recommend Watchmaker Framework for GAs. answered 30 Nov '16, 18:28 Paul Rubin ♦♦ It's very good! I will try that. Thank you!!! And is there any solver for Benders decomposition for stochastic programming? At informs annual 2016 at Nashville,TN last month, I was looking for a solver for stochastic programming, but I couldn't find one.

You should take a look at some of the COINOR projects (https://www.coinor.org/projects/).
