OpenSplice User Group Meeting Europe, Berlin, Germany, June 18, 2013 – PrismTech™, a global leader in standards-based, performance-critical middleware, today announced a major update to the Open Source OpenSplice™ Community Edition. This v6.3 update will provide access to the latest version of OpenSplice DDS along with several innovations that improve usability, productivity and performance.
OpenSplice is the most advanced and complete Open Source implementation of the OMG™ Data Distribution Service (DDS) for Real-Time Systems standard and represents the state-of-the-art in Real-Time data sharing. It sets new levels of performance, robustness, scalability, fault-tolerance and portability (platform support). If you have a time-sensitive distributed application or a system that requires reliable and deterministic data-sharing, then OpenSplice v6.3 should be at the top of your list of enabling technologies.
Whether users are developing systems for mil/aero, simulation, smart energy, mobile healthcare, transportation, industrial applications (e.g. Real-time Machine to Machine (M2M)) or Internet connectivity, then OpenSplice v6.3 (with its extensive set of configurable Qualities-of-Service) is a key system enabler. In the latest OpenSplice Community Edition v6.3 all of this is available to the user community as an LGPLv3 Open Source distribution.
The latest OpenSplice Community Edition will feature the first implementation of the new DDS ISO C++ API available on the market. The new C++ API greatly reduces the complexity of developing DDS applications, and improves efficiency and safety. This release also introduces support for a stand-alone deployment mode and along with the latest DDSI v2.1 implementation enables a greatly enhanced ‘zero-configuration’ out-of-the-box experience. In addition numerous other updates and improvements have been made to the code base since OpenSplice v5.5 (the previous Community Edition release). Key upgrades include: performance and footprint improvements, bug fixes, robustness improvements, maintainability improvements, additional interfaces and adaptations to support superior tooling (for both development and run-time monitoring and optimization) and ease-of-use enhancements.
PrismTech also provides a comprehensive set of add-ons and world class commercial support for users where their business or mission-critical projects require guaranteed service levels. The aligned code-base between the community and commercial editions allows for a seamless transition from the community to a fully supported release.
“The latest version of the OpenSplice Community Edition is one of the most advanced, yet easy to use, Open Source infrastructures for data sharing in complex and large scale distributed systems,” explained Angelo Corsaro, Ph.D, OpenSplice CTO, PrismTech. “This community update asserts our commitment to Open Source and our role as a thought and technology leader.”
