Unknown error happening

When I am trying to send a file in a message using RTI DDS I keep getting this error and can not decode its meaning for how to fix it. The file is only of 2kb size as of note.

Unexpected string length: 2320 > 1023

The defined type includes a string field defined something like:

    string<1023> aString;

and you are trying to send a 2320 byte long string.  The rest of the error messages we can try to address after you've resolved the initial problem in your code.

There is a qos property setting for defining the length supported for the built-in StringDataWriter (see Table 3.1 on pdf page 68, Properties for Allocating Size of Built-in Types).  Note that if you change the size for Application A, you have to also change the size for Application B or they will still not communicate.

Thanks. I was able to solve the part of where to put this in the code since I decided to change the QOS policy file in the code. By doing

 

PropertyQosPolicyHelper.add_property(datawriter_qos.property,"dds.builtin_type.string.alloc_size" ,"2048" ,true);
PropertyQosPolicyHelper.add_property(datawriter_qos.property, "dds.builtin_type.string.max_size", "2048",true);

 

However now a new problem has appeared from this.

 

PRESTypePluginDefaultEndpointBuiltinTypeConfigData_initialize:invalid property dds.builtin_type.string.max_size
TypeSupportNativePeer_on_endpoint_attached:!init builtin type config data
PRESPsService_enableLocalEndpointWithCursor:failed to attach endpoint to typePlugin
PRESPsService_enableLocalEndpoint:!enable local endpoint

max_size isn't a datawriter_qos property, it's a participant_qos property.  See section 3.2.7 of the Users Manual PDF, and Table 3-16 on page 3-90.

I did 

PropertyQosPolicyHelper.add_property(dp_qos.property,"dds.builtin_type.string.max_size","2050",true);

and now get 

PRESTypePluginDefaultEndpointBuiltinTypeConfigData_initialize:inconsistent values: dds.builtin_type.string.alloc_size and dds.builtin_type.string.max_size

Can you supply all the code around the configuration and creation of your QoS/entities, for both the participant and the writer entity.

Note how I've created the qos variable, pre-populated it using a factory call, modified the single parameter you are looking at, and then used the qos variable in the create method for the entity I wanted.  Certain qos -- and certainly any qos that deals with resource management, which max_size and alloc_size certainly do -- have to be configured prior to creation of the entity, as they won't be able to be modified once the resources are configured during the create call.

Others can be modified after creation but before enable (disable auto-enable of entities in the factory if you need to do this).  And finally others can be modified even after enable, during the runtime.  See the documentation.

that tells me it's working.  Use -printSample with rtiddsspy to see what was sent.

It was sending what should be sent. Now if I wanted to set up a datareader, would I have to make any changes to it's qos file as well?

Yes.  if you don't the writer will be writing 2k strings, and the reader's buffers will only be set up for 1k strings.

If you make changes to Writer QoS, you should immediately look at the Reader's QoS also to see if it must mirror the changes.  In this case yes.
