Good start for developing

Hi everyone,

I signed in this afternoon and download the ignition SDK too.
I have some questions about what is possible or not with this SDK.

First I will explain what I want to do and if you can tell me if it’s possible it could be great :slight_smile:

I would like to integrate in my java application a light opc client.
I would like to have the following features:

  • network discovery to see all opc server on the network
  • read value in real time

Is it possible to do that ? Is it full java or java-python ?

Is there a procedure to set up a applaication base -> how to create an opc client object, document with example and methods list (different than javadoc of course)

Thx for your help guys !

The Ignition SDK is for developing modules for the Ignition platform; it is not a general purpose OPC-UA SDK.

You’ll want to find an OPC-UA SDK to accomplish what you’re trying to do.

So there is no librairy in java or python that could allow me to create an opc client for opc ignition ?:frowning:

Not currently, at least as a component of our SDK.

There are various commercial and open source OPC-UA projects out there that you can take a look at if you need to create an OPC-UA client.
