Dramatically expand the flexibility of your distributed applications by learning how to use the OpenDDS™ project's XTypes features.
The DDS XTypes specification enables new use cases with extended data modeling and schema evolution.
OpenDDS applications using XTypes can robustly handle data type differences that arise from changing requirements or from deliberate design decisions.
The 6-hour course covers the capabilities and mechanisms of XTypes and prepares students to use them in applications.
The following topics are covered in this course:
- IDL type system
- IDL annotations
- Extensibility and assignability
- Data representation
Lab exercises are completed in a browser-based interactive development environment. Participants must have unfiltered internet access using a modern browser.
Although everyone is welcome, this course is designed to help application designers and developers who are already familiar with core DDS terms and concepts (topics, publishers, subscribers) expand their skills.
To get the most out of this course, we recommend students have completed Introduction to OpenDDS Programming (either C++ or Java) or have equivalent experience with either the OpenDDS project or another DDS implementation.
