Does rtiddsgen version 5.1.0 output XML like it does in 5.0.0?

On the RTI Code Generator 2.0 Architecture Overview powerpoint (RTI_rttiddsgen_architecture.pptx), it says on the 6th slide that "The AST is equivalent to the simplified XML generated with rtiddsgen 1".  Does this mean that rtiddsgen 2 (which, as I understand, comes with RTI Connext version 5.1.0) will no longer output the simplified XML?

Hi eisaachen,

In rtiddsgen 1, we generated the simplified XML with debuggin purposes during the parsing of the IDL file. In rtiddsgen2, that is provided as an EAR in 5.1.0, the architecture has completely changed and we don't generate that simplified XML anymore.

If what you need is an XML file equivalent to the IDL file you can use the -convertToXML option that is avaliable in both rtiddsgen and rtiddsgen 2.
