About the DIIRT Integration

The DIIRT Integration for EPICS Jackie makes it possible to use the EPICS Jackie library in any environment that uses DIIRT. In particular, the DIIRT integration is designed to work with Control System Studio (CSS). EPICS Jackie is a pure Java implementation of the Channel Access protocol used by EPICS. It is fully interoperable with other implementations of the Channel Access protocol.


An extensive manual, explaining how to use the DIIRT Integration for EPICS Jackie is available online and as part of the binary distribution. There also is a complete API reference that is also bundled with the binary distribution.
