Eclipse eCAL (enhanced Communication Abstraction Layer)

Eclipse eCAL™ (enhanced Communication Abstraction Layer) provides a middleware that enables scalable, high performance interprocess communication on a single computer node or between different nodes in a computer network. Eclipse eCAL uses a publish-subscribe pattern to automatically connect different nodes in the network.

The middleware solution enables rapid prototyping for those high performance distributed meta-applications by providing the following base features:

  • intraprocess, interprocess and interhost communication
  • different transport layer implementations (shared memory, UDP, TCP)
  • different communication patterns as publish/subscribe and server/client
  • builtin support for multiple standard message protocols like google protobuf, flatbuffers or capnproto
  • support for Windows as well as POSIX operating systems
  • language bindings to C, C++, C#, Python, Rust, Go, M-Script
  • powerful additional tools for live data monitoring, recording and replay
