26.2. Scripting Interface

The scripting interface is in Python, and scripts can be used to build analysis workflows. The Python scripts control the Java classes in the application through the Jython interpreter (http://www.jython.org/). There are two types of components which are useful in building analysis scripts. The first type is the PerformanceResult interface, and the second is the PerformanceAnalysisComponent interface. For documentation on how to use the Java classes, see the javadoc in the perfexplorer source distribution, and the example scripts below. To build the perfexplorer javadoc, type

 %>./make javadoc

in the perfexplorer source directory.
