Avoid Calling Java
main Methods in MATLAB
When calling a
main method from MATLAB®, the method returns when it executes its last statement, even if the method
creates a thread that is still executing. In other environments, the
method does not return until the thread completes execution.
Be cautious when calling
main methods from MATLAB, particularly
main methods that start a user interface.
main methods are written assuming they are the entry point to application
code. When called from MATLAB,
main is not the entry point, and the fact that other
Java® UI code might be already running can lead to problems.
