Summary: Automatically connecting ports of peers.
Product: OCL
Version: trunk
Platform: All
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: enhancement
Priority: P2
Component: Deployment
AssignedTo: orocos-dev [..] ...

Using the xml-configuration of the Deployment component it is not possible to
automatically connect all the ports between two components.

Since this way of connecting ports is used a lot and requires a lot less
configuration code in the xml-file (with respect to creating a configuration
entry for each port of each component) i would really like to see this added
in the deployment component configuration.

I Added this feature.

$ svn ci doc deployment/ -m"Fix bug #477: Automatically connecting ports of
peers.
A new XML element 'AutoConnect' has been added. When two components have this
flag set to '1', the DeploymentComponent will automatically connect these ports
based upon equal names.
See the updated manual.
