Enquiring about R Process working,

Girija Kalyani

Dear Group,

I have a doubt to be clarified regarding deployment of 52N WPS. if a R script is registerd wid the server and R repository is activated then even if a user who doesn't hav R Installed locally will be able to access the process? Or is it that user jus must activate R repository and then all processes work without the need of R?
if processes need R to be installed locally then whats the point of using web services?
Im slightly confused and will be greatly obliged with your response sir.
awaiting your reply.
Thanks in advance!

WPS4R uses Rserve to connect to R, meaning that R can run on the server
on which the WPS runs, or on any other server (if properly configured).
Everything could run on the client machine, but as you say, what would,
apart from testing, be the point of that?
