Gurobi environment object. Gurobi models are always associated with an environment. You must create an environment before can you create and populate a model. You will generally only need a single environment object in your program.

The methods on environment objects are mainly used to manage Gurobi parameters (e.g., get, getParamInfo, set).

While the Java garbage collector will eventually collect an unused GRBEnv object, an environment will hold onto resources (Gurobi licenses, file descriptors, etc.) until that collection occurs. If your program creates multiple GRBEnv objects, we recommend that you call GRBEnv.dispose when you are done using one.
