OpenDDS is OCI’s open source implementation of Object Management Group’s standard Data Distribution Service (DDS). 

Developers use OpenDDS as a framework for enabling C++ and Java applications to distribute data over a network in a decoupled publish/subscribe paradigm.

Unlike low-level transport protocols, OpenDDS middleware is aware of the schema and semantics of the data it distributes, which allows it to use advanced Quality of Service (QoS) options to address many distributed computing challenges.

OpenDDS interoperates with other DDS implementations.
