Interface ideas

Postby jjkparker » Mon Oct 25, 2010 6:05 pm

These are trades that will need to be considered before an interface method is chosen.

Interface mechanics
    • server (Win: DDE, could be TCP)
    • wrapper API (e.g. Java)
    • loadlibrary
    • mex files
    • MATLAB Engine .dll

  • raw access to GMAT objects
  • custom API

GMAT object management:
  • single gmat instance (w/ multiple Sandboxes)
  • multiple gmat instances

I dont' have Matlab at present ($$$) - but GNU Octave ( is handy for all things in orbital mechanics, RF, EE, mechatronics that I used to do in Matlab over several years. Others probably are more expert than I. So:
  • Has an Octave/GMAT interface been considered in previous work (what are the key issues?)
  • Is it desired? (will anyone be interested to use it other than myself)
  • Is anyone else available (developer/tester/user roles) to collaborate in the process?
