Subject Re: scripting languages base cases using swig

Sounds interesting. If SWIG does its job really well than agree it worth communities efforts
to give it a try.

As a side note, I assume that somewhere in the future we will come to the point when Ignite
will have its own Machine Learning API. For every ML lib it’s essential to support Python
and R languages that are used by analysts, scientists and researches who train models and
adjust algorithms before everything is deployed in production using Java or C++.

If SWIG can generate Ignite’s APIs for Python and R then it would be a big breakthrough
for us because the platform will provide all required languages needed to adopt an ML lib
among researchers and developers.

Could you take in charge of design and create respective JIRA tickets?

>>> Hi all.
>>> Not so long ago i had to know that ignite had reduced functionality support in
scripting languages.
>>> So, idea was to take an existing C++ client and using SWIG (http://www.swig.org)
as automatic wrapper, generate clients for absence scripting languages.
>>> What do you think about this case ?
