Subject Re: Exploring Plc4x
Date Tue, 19 May 2020 14:57:11 GMT
Hi,
 I was able to use prosys OPC UA simulator and able to read simulated data
using plc4x. Fallowed plc4x documentation with couple of changes.
                       Now want to extend this by pushing this data to
Kafka using kafka connector. So I went through the example provided in
GitHub , have couple of questions:.                  1 . Is that example
general to any protocal or only for any specific protocal?
                                                    2. If it is general, I
don't understand memeory block field in plc configuration pojo? Bcz in OPC
UA example o just used filed name to retrieve simulated value.
           Regards,.
                            Venkatesh
