Are are u activating the R process via web browser with a CGI(Perl? C?) or java
servlet or rmi?
I'm thinking of writing a application for data mining/statistical analysis using
JavaBeans which access R(with JNI) and display some fancy Java graphics. Everything
to be done on a linux system. Is there anything similar going on?
