Real-Time Innovations (RTI), a real-time infrastructure solutions provider, has updated its RTI Connext product family. With over 70 new features, the latest release of RTI Connext provides a versatile and scalable architecture for developing real-time and embedded applications that use a variety of enterprise integration patterns. The resulting flexibility reduces development, integration, and testing costs and enables rapid implementation of new system requirements.

New features include:

  • Expanded enterprise integration patterns including request-reply, allowing applications to receive information on demand, only when they need it; guaranteed delivery to ensure critical data gets delivered even in the presence of hardware and software failures; and application level acknowledgement, which ensures critical data is processed completely, even if an application fails after the data was received.

  • Integrated administration console enables users to administer a running system. The new console also illustrates the state of services in applications and systems, allowing for easy reconfiguration across the development, integration and testing phases of a system.

  • Scalability enhancements for better performance across large-scale systems -- as the number of subscribers increase, there is virtually no measurable degradation in performance.

  • Initial support of DDS-XTypes facilitates information model evolution by allowing extensions and changes to existing data types while maintaining full interoperability between deployed and newly developed systems. RTI is a Data Distribution Service (DDS) provider that includes support for XTypes, an important feature for compliance with the Object Management Group (OMG) DDS standard.

RTI Connext delivers an infrastructure that meets the performance, scalability, and reliability required by operational systems, while offering the integration and flexible-messaging capabilities required by IT systems. RTI provides a leading implementation of the DDS specification.
