Subject Re: Api changes ... coming close to the finishing line

Hi all,

so I just finished porting the POC for the EtherNet/IP driver ... guess it's the least mature
driver we have ... 
Would be cool if you others (especially Sebatian) could finish porting the ADS and Modbus
... I think I did quite a lot in the Modbus, but ADS probably needs a lot more love ;-)

    Hi all,
    I just finished integrating all the additions to master in the refactoring branch and
started experimenting with the little hello-plc4x project.
    Here I noticed that I still had been missing some little things and added them.
    Also now I added a getObject method this returns the base type in case of the DefaultFieldItems
and I added specialized versions for S7 that now internally ensure the closes matching type
to the type defined in the address is returned ... so if you use BYTE, an array of 8 Booleans
is returned, if you use “UDINT” a Long is returned and so on. I think Julian will be particularly
happy about this.
    So now all left to do, is to finish the write logic in the S7 driver and finish porting
the other drivers (should be a lot easier now).
