[R] running R as a web service

Hi all,

As R is gaining space in our research group as language and environment for statistical computing and graphics it will be really helpful to have the option of using R as a web service.

We are currently using a collaborative edition wiki tool (XWiki) to develop R code. And we can call this code with source() from any R installation. But it will be great to be able to send this code to a web service and get back just the result (textual or graphics).

Rserver seems to fit into this requirement. Please, could anybody using any of this or other option share with us his/her experience? Is it feasible to run such a service with the current R release? Thanks!

Best regards,
