License-free version?


I just wanted to quickly check whether there is a version of RTI DDS to download which does not require a license file. I do have a valid license, yet we would require a more lightweight, license-free installation for some scenarios.
Unfortunately I am a bit overwhelmed with the different options to download in the customer center and I cannot find a document which explains what these different versions actually do.

We only require :

  • rtiddsgen to parse IDL files
  • c++ headers and libs to build applications which run basic data communication + distributed logging service

No GUI's/Tools required whatsoever.

I would appreciate it if you could point me to the correct file to download. If there is no license-free installation for my usecase, I would alsp appreciate a hint to a more lightweight installation for my above described needs, the "RTI Connext DDS Professional 5.0.0 for Linux" installation takes up 1.6 GB on my drive.


Thanks, Ulrich

Hi Ulrich,

The answer to that is going to be dependent on when the question is asked -- we do occasionally change our business practices and licensing models, and so any answer I give here may no longer be valid, if someone searches the forum with a similar question at a later date.

So, please contact your local account manager to get an up-to-date response.

And, since that's me, check your email :) as I've answered there first.
