WebMathematica integrates Mathematica 6/7 capabilities
Wolfram Computing (http://www.wolfram.com) has updated webMathematica,
software for for adding interactive computations to the web, to version
3.0. It now integrates the capabilities of both Mathematica 6 and 7 with
the latest web server technology
WebMathematica 3 is the deployment technology that makes Wolfram|Alpha,
the online computational knowledge engine, possible. According to the folks
at Wolfram, webMathematic 3 sports:
° Expression language and custom tags. webMathematica 3 comes with support
for a more concise way to call to Mathematica from web pages. It also
contains a library with a number of useful tags, which provide tools such
as redirecting flow as web pages are generated.
° A queuing system. webMathematica 3 allows long-running or asynchronous
computation jobs to be executed by a new queuing system.
° Support for Wolfram Workbench. Wolfram Workbench provides a number of
features that help to accelerate the development of webMathematica content.
webMathematica 3 integrates with Wolfram Workbench so that Mathematica code
can be debugged as it runs in the server.
° Web services. webMathematica 3 enables users to write REST and SOAP web
services that use Mathematica.
° A new logging system. A new, highly configurable logging system helps to
track different types of errors and to identify problems.
° Improved kernel monitor. The kernel monitor has new code for monitoring
memory usage, running time, concurrent requests, and Java objects. It
allows starting and stopping of individual kernel pools, canceling
individual computations, and monitoring of queued jobs for progress and
° Improved kernel interaction. webMathematica 3 launches kernels as soon as
the server starts and launches all kernels in parallel, which helps to
improve the startup time for the server. It also has a number of new
configuration tools, which limit the use of time and memory by the kernel.
Kernels are automatically restarted in the background, so service remains
WebMathematica 3 is available for purchase online and by phone and mail.
