javasci v1 limitations
Why javasci v1 is now deprecated ?
The version V1 of javasci has some important limitations:
- To retrieve any variable from the Scilab language, knowing the type of the variable is mandatory a priori.
- Only a few types are managed by the interface (boolean, double, complex and string).
- Lack of consistency between Scilab and Java. For example, in Scilab, a scalar (matrix of [1,1]) is a matrix. In the Java interface, there are two different datatypes (example: SciDouble and SciDoubleArray).
- There is no serialization possible on most of the datatype.
- Calling a Scilab function can be done only with the Exec method and increases the complexity of the retrieval of multiple output arguments.
- The package name does not follow the package naming rules of Scilab and the Scilab Java checkstyle.
- Hard to manage graphics windows (this problem is not addressed yet in Javasci v2)
- No interaction with the event loop (this problem is not addressed yet in Javasci v2)
- Cannot manage several instances of Scilab (this problem is not addressed yet in Javasci v2)
|5.4.0||Javasci v1 is removed.|
