Distribute Files to Application Developers

After you create a component using MATLAB® Compiler SDK™, distribute files and integrate them in an application.

The deploytool apps generate an installer that packages all of the binary artifacts required for distributing a compiled component. The installer is located in the for_redistribution folder of the compiler project.

You can also generate an installer using the compiler.package.installer function.

If you do not create an installer, distribute the set of files required to integrate the component according to the component type. In order to run the application, the target machine must have access to MATLAB Runtime that matches the version of MATLAB used to compile the component, at the same update level or newer.

Distribute COM Components

Distribute the following files to integrate a component in an application:

  • Function signatures of the deployed MATLAB functions

  • packageName.dll — generated COM component

  • _install.bat — generated script that registers the component (to register manually, see Register COM Component)

Distribute C/C++ Shared Libraries

Distribute the following files to integrate a C/C++ shared library in an application:

  • Function signatures of the deployed MATLAB functions

  • libraryName.lib/.dylib/.so — generated library

  • libraryName.h — generated header file

Distribute Java Packages

Distribute the following files to integrate a Java® package in an application:

  • Function signatures of the deployed MATLAB functions

  • packageName.jar — generated Java package

Distribute .NET Assemblies

Distribute the following files to integrate a .NET assembly in an application:

  • Function signatures of the deployed MATLAB functions

  • assemblyName.dll — generated assembly file

  • assemblyName.xml — generated documentation files

  • assemblyName.pdb — optionally generated program database file containing debugging information

Distribute Python Packages

Distribute the following files to integrate a Python® package in an application:

  • Function signatures of the deployed MATLAB functions

  • _init_.py — initialization script for the Python package

  • setup.py — generated Python installer
