R.net and deployR

Apr 27, 2015 at 4:45 AM
Hi,
I am new for R.net. I am creating a web service to execute my R.script. Another option is to use deployR. I,d like to have my web user to have inputs to execute the web service.

DeployR also can have a web service for me to use.

Please advice which way is better? To create my own web service to use r.net or to use deployR server which create a web service for me?

Thanks,

Tom

You will have to evaluate what suits your needs, and you can access both software stacks. You summarize them in two short sentences - readers cannot give qualified advice based on it.

You can have a look at a sample code written by a R.NET contributor (skyguy94) in the rdotnet-onboarding guide under solutions/WebApp .

Note that, as I understand (I am not doing web dev) IIS interferes with the REngine modifications of the PATH, so see for instance this discussion to make things work. the PATH environment variable must be changed before running.
