Introduction

webMathematica is a new server-based technology that merges the computing power of Mathematica with the convenience and accessibility of the web. Built around Java servlets, webMathematica is fully compatible with state-of-the-art dynamic web systems. It can be used to build custom websites that provide premium customers with specialized calculations, to publish interactive papers, and to deploy calculators, algorithms, and problem solvers over the web or intranets.

In this seminar, Tom Wickham-Jones, Director of Strategic Kernel Technology at Wolfram Research, Inc. and key developer of webMathematica, will introduce this new technology and present an in-depth tutorial with live demonstrations of the technology.

With a focus on the technology, the seminar will provide instruction on how to develop content for a webMathematica site and how to administer the site. Examples will include using webMathematica to build web-based calculators and larger web-computing environments. The seminar will demonstrate integrating webMathematica with existing web environments as well as with web technologies such as Java Server Pages (JSP) and database connectivity tools. In addition, the seminar will show how to call a webMathematica server from other clients such as spreadsheet and Java applications.
