Open Source OpenADR Toolkit

Platform Overview

This distribution of OpenADR is constructed in the form of a toolkit. As such, it contains source code organized in a form that allows specific server and/or client configurations to be easily built and executed. As with any software distributed as source code, compromises are necessary between ease of installation and usability of the resulting development environment. To that end, several decisions have been made for the platform and tool environment of this initial distribution of the OpenADR toolkit. Variations from this initial configuration are both possible and, ultimately, will be necessary. However, in order to speed the process of building and testing an initial instance of an OpenADR server and client, we strongly suggest that you conform to the configuration profile described below (at least initially).

In order to insure that toolkit users see and accept the required "click through" license, the entire toolkit is contained in a single .zip file. This file can be downloaded to your platform by clicking the button at the end of this document. Once the initial download operation is accomplished, the contents of this archive file should be extracted to the C:\ drive on a windows XP machine. The result should be two new folders, OpenADR_Toolkit and OpenADR_Workspace, under the root (i.e. C:\) folder.

C:\
  |
  |----OpenADR_Toolkit
  |
  |----OpenADR_Workspace
  |...........

The file "OpenADR_InstallationGuide_ver_1_x.pdf", located in the OpenADR_Toolkit folder, contains additional installation instructions. Once required libraries have been installed (see installation guide), the Eclipse IDE should be started and pointed to the OpenADR_Workspace directory for use as its workspace.

Note that, when Eclipse is first started, you will need to create three new projects, OpenADRServer, OpenADRClient and OpenADRCmdLineIface. This can be done using the "File/New/Java project" menu path. Simple insert each of the above names and Eclipse will locate the associated project files and create new projects in the workspace. This step will only be needed after initial file installation.

Access to DRRC-hosted Subversion (SVN) repositories will be made available to users, on request, subsequent to the initial "click through" license acceptance download operation.

Further documentation can be found in the C:\OpenADR_Toolkit directory.
