The Interoperability Special Interest Group met from 9 am till 10 am European Central Time.


How to distribute an extended IDL


Malcolm WOODMAN, Michael HALLORAN (Contractor for CO-LaN), Michel PONS (Contractor for CO-LaN as Chief Technology Officer)


Issues with backups at RepositoryHosting on one specific project were briefly discussed.

Ways to test the CAPE-OPEN TLB/PIA installers for a new version of the CAPE-OPEN COM IDL file incorporating the Flowsheet Monitoring interface specification were outlined. Such tests remain pending a definitive version of such installers.

Strategy towards incorporating additional interface specifications or new versions of existing interface specifications into a release of the CAPE-OPEN standard was discussed. An additional meeting is scheduled on November 27, 2017 to specifically discussed this point before any joint meeting with the Methods & Tools Special Interest Group. In the meantime the current thoughts will be documented as a basis for further preparation.


Any CO-LaN member with interest in the development of the set of software tools offered by CO-LaN is welcome to join. Please contact Malcolm WOODMAN, leader of the Interoperability SIG for further information.
