4.2. DDS Entities

The main classes extend an abstract base class called a DDS Entity. Every DDS Entity has a set of associated events known as statuses and a set of associated Quality of Service Policies (QosPolicies). In addition, a Listener may be registered with the Entity to be called when status changes occur. DDS Entities may also have attached DDS Conditions, which provide a way to wait for status changes. Figure 4.1: Overview of DDS Entities presents an overview in a UML diagram.
