The OpenDOF Eclipse Plugin for Java is an Eclipse plugin utilizing this IDE’s “Help” and “Cheatsheets”. It contains self-guided, code and document assisted steps for Operations, Connectivity, and basicSecurity training in a standard IDE.
If you have downloaded (or need to download) the SDK DOF Essentials, you may wonder what is needed to begin using it.
Basic instructions for this SDK are available on this page:
“DOF” is an acronym that defines the underlying technology supported by the OpenDOF Project. “Distributed” refers to the way objects and aspects of an object are distributed on a network. “Object” refers to the DOF Object Model, which ensures greater security and flexibility. And “Framework” refers to the fact that this is a complete solution that can be integrated into your application. To put it another way, DOF technology allows many different products, using many different standards, to more easily share information across many different networks. So whether you are networking a simple or complex system of embedded devices using local servers or taking advantage of advanced cloud technology, the OpenDOF Project can provide the solutions you need to enhance nearly any product, from the simplest resource-constrained devices to the most powerful computer networks.
