About OpenWire Editor

NEW:   OpenWire Editor is now included as part of the Firemonkey - VCL or .NET component packages!

 
Also, we offer custom licensing of the OpenWire Editor.  Embed a custom version in your product and offer users the simplicity of making graphical connections (see the video, below) to configure and control your application! Please direct any questions about custom licensing of the OpenWire Editor to Boian Mitov ( mitov@mitov.com ).
 

The OpenWire Editor provides an intuitive, powerful graphical editing pane to build OpenWire applications simply by connecting components (FireMonkey, VCL, .NET)  and making wiring diagrams.  In the OpenWire Editor, the "wires" are like those connecting a TV to a VCR, or speakers to a surround system; the OpenWire pins are analogous to the jacks where you plug the wires in; and the OpenWire components correspond to the entertainment components (TV, speakers, etc.). 

 

For a quick demonstration, watch this video:

 

 

For example, consider an application where you wish to play a video file and display the video on a form while simultaneously calculating its RGB histogram and displaying that on a Scope component.  With VideoLab and the OpenWire Editor, you would simply create Form1 and add the components (AVIPlayer, ImageDisplay, Histogram, and Scope).  Then, use you mouse to drag connections from Outputs to Inputs:

The OpenWire Editor (above) allows you to build OpenWire platform applications by drawing such wiring diagrams.  The resulting application:

The purpose of the OpenWire platform is to provide a unified, easy way to transfer data among different software components.  For example, the platform is designed so that you could quickly build an application with a sine wave generator, which streams out to a chart and in parallel to a filter, which streams out to another chart and in parallel to a file logger, as well as to a serial communication sending the data to another system.  And what makes this easy is that you do not write code: You build streams by connecting an OutputPin to one or more InputPins.   The OpenWire Editor further simplifies this pin connecting by allowing you to see the big picture as you connect components.   Mitov Software offers a vast array of custom componets on multiple platforms; or, you can build your own.
 
Then, when you run your application, the unerlying OpenWire technology pumps your data from pin to pin, using multiple threads for high performance.

Our component libraries come in 3 versions a VCL - Firemonkey version (for Delphi / C++ Builder / RAD Studio XE4 to 10.1 Berlin), an MFC compatible Visual C++ version, and a .NET 2.0 and 4.0 (4.5 and 4.6 compatible) supporting Visual Studio 2005 to 2015.
 
The RAD Studio version is a set of native VCL and Firemonkey components of which all include now the powerful Mitov Runtime.
 
The Visual C++ version is a set of native Visual C++ classes (components).
 
The NET 2.0 and 4.0 (4.5 and 4.6 compatible) version is a set of managed .NET components.  The .NET version has the same performance as the native versions, and supports all the Microsoft .NET languages including Visual Basic, C#, J#, F# and C++/CLI.
 
Due to the unique architecture of the OpenWire platform, the components are implemented the same way in Managed .NET and native Windows (32 and 64 bit) environments. The code to control a component from VB.NET, C++/CLI, C#, and J#, Visual C++ MFC, Delphi, and C++ Builder is almost identical. This allows the developers to migrate and share code between the different environments thus significantly improving the productivity.
 
OpenWire Libraries: for fast, complex data stream processing with almost zero lines of code!

OpenWire Editor: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why can't I connect two specific pins?
A:

If you are unable to connect two pins, this means that they are not compatible -- they do not produce / consume the same type of data stream.  To determine which pins are compatible, hover over an output pin and all compatible input pins will be highlighted.

Q: Can the OpenWire Editor be integrated with a product that I am developing/selling?
A:

Perhaps: it depends on the nature of your product.  Contact Boian Mitov ( mitov@mitov.com ) regarding licensing a custom, embedded version the OpenWire editor.
