The opposite applies to me. I studied several years of Physics at
University and Simulated Annealing algorithms had some "physics beauty"
There something about state functions that fits extremely well in a
physics-like view.

I don't really like Java very much, but it's a must for the people I'm
developing this project (my University). My preferred programming
language is Python and I intend to port it to this language sometime in
the future.

Thanks a lot. I hope you all find my approach useful.
