The Object Management Group (OMG), an international technology standards organization, announced its request for proposal (RFP) an Interface Definition Language v4 (IDL4) to C++ Language Mapping specification.
The language mapping specification will provide data distribution service (DDS) and CORBA users with interoperable API for C++ programming language.
“The existing IDL to C++ language mappings are currently being exercised by thousands of DDS- and CORBA-based systems,” said RFP author & principal software engineer at RTI Fernando Garcia Aranda, in a press release. “As new systems adopt OMG IDL, it is important to keep our standard mappings current so new and existing systems can benefit from the new additions to the language.
“With this RFP, we define an updated set of IDL to C++ mappings that make use of the new features of the most recent versions of the OMG IDL to the fullest extent.”
