You may not be able to use such technologies without doing so.

Limitations of the MATLAB Compiler SDK Java Target

MATLAB Java External Interface

JAR files created by MATLAB Compiler SDK cannot be loaded back into MATLAB with the MATLAB Java External Interface.

MATLAB Objects

The MATLAB Compiler SDK product's Java target does not support MATLAB object data types. MATLAB objects cannot "pass" the MATLAB/Java boundary. However, you are free to use objects in your MATLAB code.
