[SHARING] How to use Python for AI/ML integrated with WebFOCUS
See this blog article on integrating Python with WebFOCUS.

This is slightly different from the IB adapter which lets you bind a Python procedure to a DEFINE/COMPUTE statement. Instead, this has WebFOCUS call the Python procedure which generates an answer set on the Reporting Server, and then builds metadata with which a subsequent WebFOCUS procedure can read the Python output. For example, you could use Python to scrape files from the Internet and then read them as input with WebFOCUS.
