DDSXTY13 — Annotation for denoting topic types

  • Key: DDSXTY13-17
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Airbus Group ( Oliver Kellogg)
  • Summary:

    In order to use an IDL type as a topic type, some additional methods are required to be generated (such as methods for creating DataReaders and DataWriters).

    Implementations have invented their own mechanisms in this area:

    • One product might support the notion that by default all structured types can be used as topic types, defining a mechanism to selectively switch off that assumption
    • Another product might require a pragma to be used for switching on the additional code generation for topic types

    A built in annotation should be added for distinguishing topic types from non topic types.
