Deploy-DDS: Tool framework for supporting deployment architecture of data distribution service based systems
Data Distribution Service (DDS) is the Object Management Group's (OMG) new standard middleware after Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA), which is becoming increasingly popular. One of the important problems in DDS Based Software Systems is the deployment configuration of DDS modules to the physical resources. In general, this can be done in many different ways whereby each deployment alternative will perform differently. Currently, the deployment configuration is decided after the coding phase and usually performed manually. For large configurations, finding the feasible deployment might require serious rework with costly and time consuming iterations. In this paper, we present the tool Deploy-DDS to support the selection and generation of deployment architectures of DDS based systems. The tool can be used to perform an evaluation during the design phase and generate the selected feasible configuration. © 2014 Authors.
