Convert R objects to REXP references in Java

toJava takes an R object and creates a reference to that object in Java. This reference can then be passed to Java methods such taht they can refer to it back in R. This is commonly used to pass functions to Java such that Java code can call those functions later.

Keywords
interface
Usage
toJava(x, engine = NULL)
Arguments
x
R object to reference. It can be any R object and it will be retained at least for the duration of the reference on the Java side.
engine
REngine in which the reference is to be created. If null then the last created engine is used. This must be a Java object and a subclass of org.rosuda.REngine (and NOT the old org.rosuda.JRI.Rengine!).
Value

  • There result is a Java reference (jobjRef) of the Java class REXPReference.

Examples
.jinit()
  # requires JRI and REngine classes
  .jengine(TRUE)
  f <- function() { cat("Hello!\n"); 1 }
  fref <- toJava(f)
  # to use this in Java you would use something like:
  # public static REXP call(REXPReference fn) throws REngineException, REXPMismatchException {
  #	 return fn.getEngine().eval(new REXPLanguage(new RList(new REXP[] { fn })), null, false);
  # }
  # .jcall("Call","Lorg/rosuda/REngine/REXP;","call", fref)
