HOWTOs

This page contains a set of short informal recipes to help you solve common challenges you may face when using RTI Connext DDS. This recipes include topics such as configuring favorite IDE to work with our libraries, tuning the performance of your application, or configuring your firewall to let DDS traffic through.

You can contribute by commenting on existing HOWTOs or creating your own here (requires logging in).

For example, the following snippet loads the required definitions from "config.xml" and then instantiates a new Connector object for the domain participant "MyParticipant" defined in the participant library "MyParticipantLib"

const rti = require('rticonnextdds-connector');
var connector = new rti.Connector("MyParticipantLib::MyParticipant", "config.xml");

This document describes all the steps required to use a hardware Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0 to protect the identity of domain participants in a system built on top of RTI Connext DDS Secure.

The attached PDF gives step by step instructions on how to use the TPM 2.0 chip available in many business-class PCs. Note that older computers might have a chipset implementing the older specification of the TPM (1.2). Refer to the separate HOWTO document to work with TPM 1.2.

The user application doesn’t know whether a sample has been filtered; nor does it know one detail that may affect performance: the filtering can be applied on either the DataWriter side or the DataReader side.

When the DataReader filters:
