Package MATLAB Functions
Compiler SDK™ enables you to build deployable archives in a target language
that include MATLAB functions. You can build these artifacts at the MATLAB command line using any of the
compiler.build family of functions, or specify
additional compile time options using
mcc. You can also
package the artifact into an installer that installs the necessary files and
MATLAB Runtime libraries onto the target machine. MATLAB
Compiler SDK includes two
deploytool apps and the
command line function
To incorporate a deployable archive into an application in the target language, you can use MATLAB Compiler SDK generated sample files or create your own application. Distribute the application to end users along with MATLAB Runtime, which contains libraries necessary to run the code.

Deployment and Integration
- About the Deployable Archive
When MATLAB Compiler or MATLAB Compiler SDK creates an application or shared library, it bundles the content into an embedded deployable archive, which is known as the CTF archive.
- Distribute Files to Application Developers
Distribute files generated by MATLAB Compiler SDK and integrate them in an application.
- Files Generated After Packaging MATLAB Functions
Descriptions for files generated after packaging MATLAB functions.
- Manage Application State in Deployed Archives
Test application before deployment and cache data in application archives deployed to MATLAB Production Server™.
Limitations and Restrictions
MATLAB Compiler has limitations regarding what can be compiled.
- Functions Not Supported for Compilation by MATLAB Compiler and MATLAB Compiler SDK
