Introduction to ArchestrA Open Source Tools

A new trend have emerged in the Wonderware Archestra development arena where developers have realized the benefits of sharing development notes and tools. These tools are often referred to open source tools, find here my contribution. Over the next few months I will update this page with my own tools.

First some background:

ArchestrA Open Architecture Technology:
ArchestrA is a comprehensive automation and information software open architecture designed to integrate and extend the life of legacy systems by leveraging the latest, open industry standards and software technologies. ArchestrA "industrializes" Microsoft .NET and other Microsoft technologies in order to provide an even more productive toolset for building critical operations management software solutions for manufacturing, production and facilities operations. The result exposes services needed by manufacturing and industrial infrastructure such as common name space, object management, industrial security, high availability and redundancy, plant connection, enterprise connection, client interface, web portal and systems management.
Utilising ArchestrA open architecture technology, applications can be rapidly assembled using software objects rather than being "programmed". Templates can be created for almost any purpose then used to build new applications simply through the reassembly and slight modification of these templates - saving time and lowering development costs. Offerings built upon ArchestrA open architecture technology empower decision-makers to achieve their business goals, without abandoning prior investments in systems, or intellectual property.
aaTextTools - my csv and text parsers

I have build a csv and text parser to extract certain data/text out of exported galaxy dump files. I will present the tool here soon, just have to iron out a couple of bugs. In the mean time have a look at the useful links at the bottom of this page.
