API Naming Conventions

Structure & Class Names

RTI Data Distribution Service 4 makes a distinction between value types and interface types. Value types are types such as primitives, enumerations, strings, and structures whose identity and equality are determined solely by explicit state. Interface types are those abstract opaque data types that conceptually have an identity apart from their explicit state. Examples include all of the DDS::Entity subtypes, the DDS::Condition subtypes, and DDS::WaitSet. Instances of value types are frequently transitory and are declared on the stack. Instances of interface types typically have longer lifecycles, are accessible by pointer only, and may be managed by a factory object.

API Documentation Terms

In the API documentation, the term module refers to a logical grouping of documentation and elements in the API.

At this time, typedefs that occur in the API, such as DDS::Exception do not show up in the compound list or indices. This is a known limitation in the generated HTML.


Commonly used stereotypes in the API documentation include the following.
