DPWS Explorer 2 Prototype

February 26th, 2008

MATERNA is currently working on a all-new version of the DPWS Explorer. It is completely build from scratch and includes many new useful features like:

  • An improved FilterManager with generic FilterItem support (two classes for each item needs to be implemented by the user) and powerful logical expression evaluation.
  • A new SearchManager allows the discovery of specific DPWS entities. (Searchbehaviour, SearchType, DeviceType, ServiceType, Scope, UUID can be used in combination as SearchParameter.)
  • Improved Quick Info Panels with extensive node attribute information for Device and Service Nodes.
  • A new ParameterPanel visualizing all parameters of an action as a ParameterTree.
  • An improved and highly user-configurable Device Tree View.
  • Improved GUI-Responsibility by using Eclipse’s SWT as GUI-Toolkit.
  • DPWS Multi-Device support.
  • DPWS Security support.
  • Eclipse Plugin support (projected).
  • More features to come soon…

We do not plan to make the Prototype available for downloading at the moment. But stay tuned for more information posted here!

Today WS4D is introducing the first tool for exploring DPWS-enabled network devices. The DPWS Explorer is a GUI-based analyzing tool for DPWS devices, services and messages. It is a client implementation based on the WS4D Java Multi Edition DPWS Stack. E.g. the DPWS Explorer allows to view metadata information of discovered devices and services, to call actions of this services, see its responses, view the DPWS messages exchanged between the Explorer and other DPWS entities. The DPWS Explorer is developed cooperatively by MATERNA and University of Dortmund. Download the actual version here.
