It allows to create objects, call methods and access fields of Java objects from R. Many new features mostly thanks to Romain Francois -- check the NEWS file for details. Recommended update (includes bugfixes to fields handling, new support for with(), method/field auto-completion and more forgiving in R (or the online help) for details. Fixes issues with Windows; and minor updates (see NEWS). This is a major update featuring many new features and bugfixes.
r Java release versions can be obtained from CRAN - usually JRI (Java/R Interface) which provides the opposite direction - calling R from Java. This is a major upgrade that changes behavior of array references in low-level calls back to early 0.8 state as intedended by the original design. We have had r Java 0.9-0 in RC state for a long time so hopefully all developers relying on r Java have checked their packages. It sports a new custom class loader, much improved (and faster) field support, integration of all native Java types, automatic fall-back to static methods, infrastructure for writing Java packages easily (see ), support for custom convertors and call-backs. 2007/02/27 - r Java 0.4-14 (update is recommended to all users due to memory leak fixes), please use CRAN to get the latest release.
What this essentially means is that instead of creating things like user interfaces and strings in code, you create an XML file to hold this information under the ‘res’ project directory.
But before we do that, let us see how you can find a method signature if you're not sure. This interface uses Java reflection API to find the correct method so it is much slower and may not be right (works for simple examples but may not for more complex ones).
For now its use is discouraged in programs as it may change in the future.
This will naturally bring up the error because R cannot be found.
The first thing to try is to clean the project so that the Eclipse ADT will automatically attempt to rebuild the file.
On unix systems make sure that R was configured with Java support.
If not, you can re-configure R by using or run it as root depending on your installation - see R-ext manual A.2.2 for details).If you have questions about installation, please visit the R Wiki - r Java package. Remember, this is all essentially a JNI interface, so you may encounter new things if you used Java from high level only.The class name may look strange to casual Java users, but this is how JNI class names look like - slashes instead of dots. as result is working now what I save in xml is immediately registered in R. I tried to download a new portable ADT edition and I set the directory workspace on a place where i am sure i can access and the ADT version is even newer..r Java allows you to use R code to create Java objects, call Java methods and pass data between R and Java.
