In this paper we deal with propositional fuzzy formulae containing several propositional symbols linked with connectives defined in a lattice of truth degrees more complex than Bool. Instead of focusing on satisfiability (i.e., proving the existence of at least one model) as usually done in a SAT/SMT setting, our interest moves to the problem of finding the whole set of models (with a finite domain) for a given fuzzy formula. We re-use a previous method based on fuzzy logic programming where

Next, we use the ability of the FuzzyXPath tool (developed in our research group with FLOPER) for exploring these derivation trees once exported in XML format, in order to discover whether the formula is a tautology, satisfiable, or a contradiction, thus reinforcing the bi-lateral synergies between FuzzyXPath and FLOPER.
