Writing to Paraview from an external program

Paraview operates/implements a client-server paradigm. This suggests that it may be possible for an external (e.g. C++ application) to communicate with a running instance of Paraview, by sending it commands (e.g. open legacy VTK file) via the port attached to the server. Such a feature would be ideal for:

- debugging programs that output VTK data.
- automatically loading or unloading data to Paraview e.g. at the end of a smilation

    We are working on this feature as well as the ability to linking the ParaView engine with the simulation (aka co-processing or in-situ processing)

        What's the ETA on this feature?

        BTW, what's the difference between this and Co-processing?

        I need possibility to load updated data offten. This option to control paraview from external python script or even better linking paraview with our solver is just what I need.
