\subsection{Using Isabelle 2018 server}
Starting from Isabelle version 2018, Why3 is able to exploit the
server features of Isabelle to speed up the processing of proofs in
batch mode, e.g. when replaying them from within Why3 IDE. Currently,
when replaying proofs using the \verb|isabelle why3| tool, an Isabelle
process including a rather heavyweight Java/Scala and PolyML runtime
environment has to be started, and a suitable heap image has to be
loaded for each proof obligation, which can take several seconds. To
avoid this overhead, an Isabelle server and a suitable session can be
started once, and then \verb|isabelle why3| can just connect to it and
request the server to process theories. In order to allow a tool such
as Why3 IDE to use the Isabelle server, it has to be started via the
wrapper tool \verb|isabelle use_server|. For example, to process the proofs
in examples/logic/genealogy using Why3 IDE and the Isabelle server, do
the following:
\item Start an Isabelle server using
isabelle server &
\item Start Why3 IDE using
isabelle use_server why3 ide genealogy
