I have an application with both Orocos and ROS working together. As my
code is growing I now have the need to infor the ROS coordination
stuff that my "Orocos nodes" finished their deployment. For now the
only quick way I found is to create a "LastComponent" that have
deployed(Bool) port which is streamed into a rostopic. So my Ros stuff
can wait on the topic to received the deployed=True message.
Is it a good way to do it ? Do we need any additionnal stuff into
deployers ? I remind having had the same problem also in pure Orocos :
"when is my deployment finished?". Is this all related to the "we need
a brand new deployer that can handle more complex stuff" statement ?
(and at which Hermann will say : "don't recode them, they exists ! It
should be outside Orocos." ;) )
