This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
From your intro, R appears to run in its own shell, much like Matlab (or tk/tcl). I'm interested in applying this to a web environment.
Are there ways to access R directly from other programs, eg Java?
Or, would I need to set up a R server (alluded to in a previous post)?
Does you book address or touch upon either of these situations?
