Seamlessly communicates code, data, and more between programs
WSTP, long a core enabling component of Wolfram systems, is the native protocol for transferring Wolfram Language symbolic expressions between programs.
Running on a single computer or over a network, WSTP allows programs written both in the Wolfram Language and other languages to efficiently exchange code, data or other symbolic expressions, with arbitrary structure.
Richly featured libraries allow access to WSTP from a variety of languages.
C/Link provides convenient native C support for communicating via WSTP, and requesting and consuming results of computations.
wstp.h: header file
libwstp, etc.: 32- and 64-bit libraries
wsprep : template-driven glue code generator
wscc : WSTP compiler driver
J/Link provides high-level support for WSTP communication for Java programs.
With J/Link, Java classes and methods become immediately visible through WSTP in Wolfram Language programs.
.NET/Link provides high-level support for WSTP communication for .NET programs (in C#, VB.NET, etc.).
With .NET/Link, .NET types and methods become immediately visible through WSTP in Wolfram Language programs.
Full WSTP support is under development for other languages.
WSTP is the key to enabling rich exchange between software components in the Wolfram technology universe.
WSTP is the native communication protocol for the Wolfram Engine.
The Wolfram Launch Manager makes available Wolfram Engines that communicate via WSTP.
The Wolfram Desktop Notebook Interface communicates with Wolfram Engine Kernels via WSTP, on both local and remote computers.
Within the Wolfram Language, parallel computation is supported through WSTP connections between Wolfram Engine Kernels.
The Wolfram Cloud can expose a WSTP endpoint that allows communication via WSTP over the internet. URL structure: wstp://www.wolframcloud.com/...
Using WSTP language libraries and utilities, programs in many languages can be set to communicate via WSTP.
Wolfram LibraryLink allows you to create DLLs that load directly into a running Wolfram Engine, and can communicate via WSTP with the engine.
WSTP can be used to transfer symbolic expressions between any pair of programs, even if neither of them is in the Wolfram Language.
WSTP is the new name for the transfer protocol component of MathLink—the standard for interprogram communication used by Mathematica since 1990.
C/Link is the new name for the C language API component of MathLink.
