OpenDDSharp Tutorial

Until the introduction of OpenDDSharp, developers who wanted to use OpenDDS in a .NET application had to download and build OpenDDS on their systems and write interface code to access the OpenDDS DLLs. With the OpenDDSharp project, you gain access to pre-built binaries for a specific OpenDDS version in the form of an IDL Project extension and a NuGet package for interfacing your .NET projects with OpenDDS.

Interoperable Internet-Enabled DDS Applications

DDS (Data Distribution Service) and RTPS (Real-Time Publish Subscribe) are good candidate technologies for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). However, the discovery protocols in RTPS assume that the underlying network supports multicast and that datagrams are not subject to network address translation (NAT). Both of these assumptions are violated in a typical IIoT application. This article presents a solution to these problems by introducing a service that relays RTPS messages.
