Erwan Becquet <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: OpenTAZ
System name: opentaz
Type: 2

OpenTAZ is a free (BUT NOT COMPATIBLE) implementation of TASE2 (aka ICCP) 
protocol, using C++ and CORBA. 

TASE.2 protocol is an industrial messaging protocol built on top of well-known 
MMS protocol, adding timed capabilities. It is possible, using TASE.2, to send 
to clients data on a periodic basis, on demand, on data change ... It is also 
possible to operate a device (like in MMS). Goal of this project is to provide 
an implementation for this protocol, free, and with full advantages relying on 
use of CORBA and object language : heterogeneity, CORBA services ... For 
example, no standard security is defined in TASE.2 protocol, using CORBA permit 
using the standard CORBA security service. 

 TASE.2 is separated into 9 conformance blocks, only block 1 (dealing with 
periodic exchanges) is mandatory. OpenTAZ implement functionnalities for blocks 
1,2 and 5 (in progress). Block 2 add data sending on data change and block 5 is 
dealing with devices handling. OpenTAZ is built to address EXACT SAME 
FUNCTIONNALITIES as protocol TASE.2 (buffer, integrity, critical,...). 

Current distribution can be found at :

Other Software Required:
OpenTAZ is built with :

- the MICO ORB (, CORBA 2.3 compliant. 
- miniSTL available on MICO
- the POSIX Threads 
- the FLTK GUI Toolkit for the client interface. 

All these libraries/products are free (GPL or LGPL) and available (at least) on 
LinuX and Windows.
