Wolfram Research has introduced Webmathematica 3, a powerful new version of its technology for adding dynamic content to the web.

Webmathematica 3 lets users quickly and cheaply build and deploy websites with interactive calculations and visualisations.

Webmathematica 3 integrates the capabilities of Mathematica 6 and 7 with the latest web-server technology, making it suitable for creating websites where users can compute and visualise results directly in a web browser.

Webmathematica 3 is the chosen deployment technology for Wolfram|Alpha, a computational knowledge engine.

Webmathematica 3 makes the calculations performed by Wolfram|Alpha possible by allowing users to tap into Mathematica’s computational and graphic abilities without having Mathematica experience or installing it locally.

Webmathematica 3 features expression language and custom tags.

It comes with support for a more concise way to call to Mathematica from web pages.

It also contains a library with many useful tags, which provide valuable tools such as redirecting flow as web pages are generated.

Webmathematica 3 allows long-running or asynchronous computation jobs to be executed by a new queuing system.

Wolfram Workbench has many features that help to accelerate the development of Webmathematica content.

Webmathematica 3 integrates with Wolfram Workbench so that Mathematica code can be debugged as it runs in the server.

Webmathematica 3 lets users write REST and SOAP web services that use Mathematica.

A new, highly configurable logging system helps to track different types of errors and identify problems so they can be resolved easily.

The kernel monitor has new code for monitoring memory usage, running time, concurrent requests and Java objects, which help to improve the reliability of the server.

It allows starting and stopping of individual kernel pools, cancelling of individual computations and monitoring of queued jobs for progress and errors.

Webmathematica 3 launches kernels as soon as the server starts and launches all kernels in parallel, which helps to improve the start-up time for the server.

It also has a number of new configuration tools, which limit the use of time and memory by the kernel; this helps to improve the reliability of the server.

Kernels are automatically restarted in the background, so service remains uninterrupted.

Webmathematica is based on Java Servlet technology, making installation simple and enabling seamless integration to standard server applications.

In addition to Wolfram|Alpha, Webmathematica is the deployment technology for web-based education tools and online calculators and serves as the publishing tool for interactive courseware and textbooks on the web.
