octave in java

Ernst Reissner
Hi all,

I just tried in octave:

octave:1> debug_java(1)
ans = [](0x0)
octave:3>  oct=javaObject('org.octave.Octave')
oct =

<Java object: org.octave.Octave>

octave:4>  javaMethod('needThreadedInvocation',oct)
ans = 1

What means that one can invoke from within octave the java function

which in turn is defined native in the java class org.octave.Octave

and which is provided by liboctinterp.so.

So far so good.

Then I try the (much more interesting) method doEvalString and use it to
evaluate sin(1).

The result is

octave:10> javaMethod('doEvalString','org.octave.Octave','sin(1)')
error: 'nargin' undefined near line 36 column 7
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'octave_execution_exception'
panic: Aborted -- stopping myself...
attempting to save variables to 'octave-workspace'...
save to 'octave-workspace' complete

I do not at all understand this output.

Seems to have to do with the fact, that doEvalString has an input argument.

I presume that it is for sin that nargin is undefined.

I tried also with pi instead of sin(1), same effect.

What works out relatively ok is 42:

octave:3>  javaMethod('doEvalString','org.octave.Octave','42')
ans =  42
ans = [](0x0)
The second ans is the output of function javaMethod.

I can also do


and then

octave:8> b
b =  42

so the problem is just invocation of functions.

Who can help?

Re: octave in java

additional information:

If i try the following java code:

   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {// NOPMD
    org.octave.Octave o = new org.octave.Octave();
    System.out.println("need threaded invocation: "
               + o.needThreadedInvocation());

this results in

need threaded invocation: true

Process eu.simuline.octave.OctaveInterfaceTester aborted

so needThreadedInvocation() can still be invoked whereas doEvalString
can not.

Even o.doEvalString("42;");

does not work.

Any suggestions?
