RTI System Designer is a tool that allows you to graphically design and configure Connext® DDS systems. You can use it as a User Interface to XML-Based Application Creation, a technology that allows users to specify all the aspects of a DDS system in XML format including:
The application code simply indicates the participant configuration name of the DomainParticipant that the application wants to create. The XML-Based Application Creation infrastructure takes care of the rest creating the DomainParticipant, registering the types and Topics, and populating all the configured Entities.
Writing this XML can be quite challenging. Using a good editor with autocompletion capabilities along with the XML Schema provided can be of great help. But it is still quite complicated, especially as the project gets bigger and involves multiple files.
The RTI System Designer UI tool can help ease this process and manage the complexity of a large system.
