MSc in Computer Science
Internet computing with MATLAB
The purpose of this project is to create MATLAB applications that
use the capabilities of the World Wide Web to send data to a remote
server for computation and to display the results in on a local
MATLABŪ application. The data is sent to and received from the remote
application using gSOAP.
Data can be sent to a remote server, which need not have a copy
of MATLAB installed. This is accomplished by calling gSOAP functions
from MEX-files written in the C programming language. The MEX interface
code and accompanying C code is automatically generated by gSOAP.
The use of the gSOAP compiler (which is part of this project) simplifies
this task, which otherwise requires users to program most of the
data communications at a lower level. This project specializes on
efficient data representations for communication with Web services,
such as sparse numerical matrix representations. The diagram shows
the visualization of weather forecast data through MATLAB.
