Can I use web compiler to build a web demo for the users?

Dear All,
I do not know if it is possible to use web compiler to build up a web demo for the users of our software. The users can directly go to a webpage to run the demo version of our software without any download.
Thanks for your suggestions.

I suspect it would technically work. However, the web application compiler is not specifically designed to be secure, so MATLAB recommends not making web apps available over the internet.

Hi, Walter,
Thanks for your prompt reply. So you mean it is impposible to build up a web demo for our product, right? Can we use Standalone Application Compiler to do this?
You have a good weekend!

There are things that can be done but which are not recommended.
The web app compiler is not specifically designed for security, so Mathworks says that you should only make web apps available to people you trust.
Web apps are not specifically and deliberately insecure, but they are not designed for security from the ground up. One of the lessons from historical experience is when a program is not specifically designed for security then it is common that there are unexpected security flaws.
For example what happens if a client of a web app deliberately sends back corrupt state? Web apps are not designed to have extensive validation checks on every user interaction.
