I am looking for an application (or and IDE plugin) that I can use in order to test some algorithms I implement.
Mainly metaheuristics used in TSP, VRP and other optimization problems.

I have already checked some common suggestions on the net, but they're rather too simple for example Zest.

Any suggestions?

Please elaborate. There is not enough information for me to figure out what you are after. – Job Jul 25 '11 at 19:17

See this site for exhaustive resources on algorithm visualization

It also depends on what language/toolkits you want to use and plugin. Matplotlip, Gnuplot, Ciro graphics and many many tools can be used.
