RTI Transport Documentation

IMPORTANT: This documentation is under construction and details may be missing. If you are interested in developing a custom transport plugin for RTI Connext, please contact your local RTI representative or email sales[email protected]@rti[email protected].com.

The Transport Plugin API presents an abstract communication model that is independent of underlying physical transport devices. This API is used by the higher layers of RTI Connext to send and receive messages.

Code that implements the Transport Plugin API can be plugged into the RTI Connext middleware framework allowing users to use virtually any physical transport that can carry data from one application to another, one node to another.

RTI Connext provides several builtin Transport Plugins. Users can create their own plugin by writing code that implements the interface described in Transport Plugin API. To use the plugin, the user must instantiate, install and configure the plugin via the RTI Connext APIs described in the RTI Connext Public API documentation "Installing Transport Plugins".

To write your own Transport Plugin, start with the documentation in Transport Plugin API. There is supporting documentation in Common Transport Plugin Types and Declarations that describes base types and structures used by the Transport Plugin API.

Finally, there is an example of a Transport Plugin provided in source code in Example Transport Plugin.
