The Interoperability SIG met from 9 am till 10 am European Central Time.

Agenda: Versioning of documents, documentation sets, IDL, type libraries, etc…


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


  • Code signing certificate
    • Renewal to be completed with DigiCert.
    • Support to energy and information streams (missing and needed for test of recent implementations)
      • Michael HALLORAN has made the necessary changes and committed them.
      • Michel PONS to build new version of COLTT and test it.
      • COLTT installer doesn’t include type library installer:
        • Could be included, as a safety precaution, in case COLTT is installed first.
  • 64-bit only PMEs
    • Windows DLL Surrogate as a solution?
      • Requires the registry entry App_ID to be set for each component.
      • Suspects that this is not done routinely for CO components, needs to be confirmed.
    • Best practices to be presented at next CAPE-OPEN Annual Meeting?

Next meeting of the Interoperability SIG is scheduled for July 15, 2019.
