Current status of bacnet4j lib?
Salutations from Australia :-)
First-up thanks Matthew for the source release. Open source rocks.
Before we commit to using bacnet4j we have a couple of questions:
how widely has bacnet4j been tested against "real devices"?
do you have a compiled list of existing/known issues with the codebase?
is there a "portfolio" of existing virtual bacnet devices that could be used for testing/learning?
If you're looking for constructive criticism, the biggest issue(s) we have with your code is the lack of doco... I think the codebase would benefit tremendously from the addition of some documentation to each of the main classes in the library, and some unit/functional tests that work "out of the box".
Assuming we go with bacnet4j (my boss is concerned about the lack of doco/tests), we would be interested in returning our fixes/improvements/tests/etc back to sourceforge if you're interested.
First-up thanks Matthew for the source release.
Open source rocks.
Except for the guy supporting it. In general i don't have the information you are requesting. Not everyone who uses the software tells me so, much less describes how they are using it with detailed equipment lists and such.
Also, I apologize for the lack of documentation. I'm still waiting on someone who freely uses the software to contribute such a thing back to the project.
