DDS-XTypes 1.0b2 FTF Avatar
  1. OMG Issue

DDSXTY — Provide minimal backwards-compatible conformance point

  • Key: DDSXTY-25
  • Legacy Issue Number: 15705
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Real-Time Innovations ( Gerardo Pardo-Castellote)
  • Summary:

    One of the reasons for the development of the DDS-XTypes specification was the prior lack of explicitness and formality in the DDS type system and in its representations. DDS-XTypes addresses this need—and simultaneously extends both the type system and its representations. It would help the discourse about DDS systems, and the modeling of DDS systems, if a subset of DDS-XTypes were defined that identified only those parts of DDS and/or DDS-RTPS that were in broad use before the existence of DDS-XTypes.
    This subset would include the following:
    • A subset of the Type System:
    o The full set of primitive types
    o Strings of narrow or wide characters
    o Sequences
    o Aliases
    o Structures without inheritance and with “final” extensibility
    o Enumerations
    o Unions
    • The IDL Type Representation of the above
    • The CDR Data Representation of the above
    • The Plain Language Binding for the above

  • Disposition Summary:

    Identify the above subset of the specification in a new, non-normative, annex
