fdtCONTAINER supports FDT 2

03-16-2011 03:20 PM CET | IT, New Media & Software

Press release from: M&M Software GmbH

The fdtCONTAINER-Product family, the scalable system of software components for any FDT-application environment by M&M Software, already supports the new FDT 2 standard. A prototype-version of the project- and DTM-administration has been integrated in the fdtCONTAINER application, to be the first such frame application and is on display at the M&M exhibition booth during the HMI 2011.
The technical basis of the FDT 2 standard is .NET; COM and ActiveX have been replaced. The FDT-Object model was substantially simplified; the data exchange is no longer based on XML-documents, but on .NET-Classes. The DTMs and UIs no longer interact directly, but via the frame application; this greatly improves the threading and the interoperability. DTMs in FDT 2 store the data in a differentiated manner, which significantly shortens the storage- and loading times.
Digital signatures of the FDT 2 DTMs ensure that the DTM actually comes from the stated manufacturer. This guarantees maximum security for the frame application against components from other suppliers.
On top of this, all these functions are fully downward compatible. This means that projects can consist of mixed topologies, FDT 2 and FDT 1.2.x DTMs, or exclusively of FDT 1.2.x DTMs. Where possible, the FDT 1.2.x XML structures were transferred into the new .NET data types which were introduced with FDT 2.

FDT is now platform independent
Besides many advantages FDT sometimes reaches its limits: it is linked to Windows and requires the local installation of DTMs. By using intelligent technologies for desktop virtualization M&M Software has developed an innovative concept to overcome these limits: Instead of an installation on operator stations, all necessary DTMs are only installed in one central Remote FDT Server together with a special fdtCONTAINER. Now, an operator station gets access on specific DTM
