MATLAB Compiler SDK™ extends the functionality of MATLAB Compiler™ to let you build C/C++ shared libraries, Microsoft® .NET assemblies, and Java® classes from MATLAB® programs. These components can be integrated with custom applications and then deployed to desktop, web, and enterprise systems.
MATLAB Compiler SDK includes a development version of MATLAB Production Server™ for testing and debugging application code and Excel add-ins before deploying them to web applications and enterprise systems.
Applications created using software components from MATLAB Compiler SDK can be shared royalty-free with users who do not need MATLAB. These applications use the MATLAB Runtime, a set of shared libraries that enables the execution of compiled MATLAB applications or components.
