Run processing sketches from Matlab or MAX/MSP.

The Processing class wraps a sketch (PApplet) in a window (Frame) and provides methods to show and dispose sketches.

First, you need to make sure Matlab has acces to the processing code in "core.jar". I have included an install script to add "core.jar" to the classpath.

Then, export the sketch (*.pde) to an Applet to obtain the *.java and *.class files. Make sure there are in Matlab's classpath (using javaclasspath).

Finally, you can run the sketch by using'')

You can also set sketch location, always on top, and a few other things.

An example sketch & matlab script is included.

This Processing-wrapper-class can also be used in MaxMSP.
