What is Middleware? Communications Middleware and DDS

Date: 
January, 2012

This paper explores the features of Communications Middleware (including DDS) providing a foundation of the role of middleware in software development.

Twin Oaks Computing Partners with LAC for ContextNet Project

The Laboratory for Advanced Collaboration (LAC) chose to utilize the Twin Oaks Computing CoreDX DDS University Licensing Program for an ongoing project: ContextNet.   Project ContextNet aims at enabling communication services for large and wide scale exchanges, including on-line monitoring or coordination of mobile device activities, and information sharing through social networks. These entities may be users of portable devices (e.g. smartphones), vehicles, or moveable gadgets.

CoreDX DDS on Android

This video shows how easy it is to deploy a CoreDX DDS enabled application to the Android phone. The Data Distribution Service interoperability tool 'Shapes' from Twin Oaks Computing is imported into the Eclipse IDE, configured, built, and loaded to an Android emulator as an example application.

DDS and its Relation to Unmanned Vehicle Interoperability

Date: 
June, 2011

DDS is increasingly beiong adopted as the middleware and data-model of choice for vehicle integration and interoperability. Testament to that are the recent directives from the UK MOD (Def Stan 23-03) that standardize on DDS for the Land Data Model and the messaging integration, as well as the US OSD Unmanned Control Segment (UCS) architecture that also directs the use of DDS for Unmanned Vehicle integration.

DDS Interoperability Demo: RTI, Prismtech, TwinOaks

Date: 
July, 2009

Three vendors: RTI, PrismTech, and TwinOaks Computing performed a live interoperability demo between their respective products.

The demo showcased 7 scenarios:

  • Basic interoperability
  • QoS Matching
  • Quality of Service: DURABILITY
  • Time Based Filters
  • Quality of Service: RELIABILITY
  • Intermittent Connectivity
  • Multiple Topics, Keys & Content Filters

And demonstrated interoperability for:

Achieving DDS Interoperability

Date: 
July, 2009

Twin Oaks Computing, Real-Time Innovations, and PrismTech participated in a multi-vendor DDS interoperability demonstration during the March 2009 OMG Technical Meeting in Arlington, VA, USA. In this presentation, we will describe the events leading up to the demonstration and discuss how we were able to achieve success. We will cover challenges faced, lessons learned, and touch on related future work.
