In this guide, we will walk through the implementation of the Global Waypoint List Driver and requires you to understand  How to create a Component and How to add Services to a Component.

Starting in SDK v6.0.0-dev.12, the OjListManager class was introduced. This class partially implements the ListManager service to handle most of the list management needs and simplify the implementation of all derived List Driver services.

.h file

#include <openjaus/core_v1_1/Managed.h>
#include <openjaus/mobility_v1_0/Services/impl/OjListManager.h>
#include <openjaus/mobility_v1_0/Services/GlobalWaypointListDriver.h>

class MyComponent :
    public virtual openjaus::mobility_v1_0::services::impl::OjListManager,
    public virtual openjaus::mobility_v1_0::services::GlobalWaypointListDriver,
    public openjaus::core_v1_1::Managed // [1]
    virtual ~MyComponent();

    // Required OjListManager methods
    virtual bool isElementDataSupported(const openjaus::mobility_v1_0::ElementDataBlob& value); // [2]

    // Required GlobalWaypointListDriver methods // [3]
    virtual bool modifyTravelSpeed(openjaus::mobility_v1_0::ExecuteList *executeList);
    virtual bool executeWaypointList(openjaus::mobility_v1_0::ExecuteList *executeList);

    virtual bool waypointExists(openjaus::mobility_v1_0::ExecuteList *executeList);
    virtual bool elementSpecified(openjaus::mobility_v1_0::ExecuteList *executeList);

    virtual openjaus::mobility_v1_0::ReportActiveElement getReportActiveElement(openjaus::mobility_v1_0::QueryActiveElement *queryActiveElement);


[1] The Managed base component is used since the Management service is required in the inheritance chain. For IOP components the IopManaged base component should be used.

[2] The OjListManager class requires this method to be implemented.

[3] Only the methods relevant to the List management functionality is shown. There may be additional methods that need to be implemented for a fully functional Global Waypoint List Driver service.
