Dear all,

I have been writing during last year at the European Bioinformatics Institute a general unified open source solution for R integration. This work is now available via this link:
http://www.ebi.ac.uk/microarray-srv/frontendapp/ The different frameworks and tools of the biocep project are now robust enough for production use. The different APIs are finalized but the documentation is incomplete.
the last version of the biocep README file can be found here : http://www.ebi.ac.uk/microarray-srv/frontendapp/BIOCEP_README.txt

Here are the major use cases I dealt with :

This work uses extensively a large number of existing open source projects as is or patched.

The public SVN url/login/pasword for the biocep project are in the README file

You may want to try the Virtual R Workbench on your local machine, use the following link :
http://www.ebi.ac.uk/microarray-srv/frontendapp/rworkbench.jnlp or type 'javaws
http://www.ebi.ac.uk/microarray-srv/frontendapp/rworkbench.jnlp' from the command line.
This is a one click installation process for Windows and Mac OS X. (You need to preinstall R on Mac OS X while on Widows an embedded R 2.6 can be deployed and used)
The Java Web Start installer creates an RWorkbench directory in your home dir with all the files required. You may continue launching the application via the url (good for fetching updates automatically) or use the RWorkbench/VRWorkbench.txt to Run the application off line. rename it to VRWorkbench.bat on Windows or type 'source VRWorkbench.txt' on Mac OS X command line.
use the sources of biocep to run the R Workbench on Unix-like operating systems.

Best wishes,
