J. Darmont, "DESP-C++: A Discrete-Event Simulation Package for C++", Software Practice and Experience, Vol. 30, No. 1, 2000, 37-60.


DESP-C++ is a C++ discrete-event random simulation engine that has been designed to be fast, very easy to use and expand, and valid. DESP-C++ is based on the resource view. Its complete architecture is presented in detail, as well as a short "user manual". The validity of DESP-C++ is demonstrated by the simulation of three significant models. In each case, the simulation results obtained with DESP-C++ match those obtained with a validated simulation software: QNAP2. The versatility of DESP-C++ is also illustrated this way, since the modelled systems are very different from each other: a simple production system, the din-ing philosopher classical deadlock problem, and a complex object-oriented database management system.
