DDSJAVA — Getting rid of the Bootstrap Object

  • Key: DDSJAVA-22
  • Legacy Issue Number: 16531
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    The boostrap class is a pain for users which is in place only to allow
    users to run 2 different DDS implementations on the same application.
    The introduction of the Bootstrap object makes it impossible to use
    natural constructors for creating DDS types, even for types such as
    Time and Duration.
    As one of the main goal of the new DDS PSM was to simplify the
    user experience and make the API as simple and natural as possible,
    it seems that the introduction of the Bootstrap object goes exactly
    on the opposite direction – all of this to be able to cover the case
    in which a user wants 2 different DDS implementation on the same
    application. Considering the wire-protocol interoperability
    this use case seems marginal and perhaps does not even count for 1% of
    DDS uses.

    The bootstrap should be removed and the resulting API should be simplified.
