The integration of constraint solvers into proof planning has pushed the problem solving horizon. Proof planning benefits from the general functionalities of a constraint solver such as consistency checks, constraint inference, as well as the search for instantiations. However, off-the-shelf constraint solvers need to be extended in order to be be integrated appropriately: In particular, for correctness, the context of constraints and Eigenvariable-conditions have to be taken into account. Moreover, symbolic and numeric constraint inference have to be combined. This paper discusses the extensions, their conceptional realization, and the implementation in the constraint solver CoSIE.
