AREG IoT SDK (or AREG SDK) is a real-time asynchronous communication framework written in C++ for embedded development that enables thin servers run on connected Things and provide device specific services at the edge of IoT network.


AREG IoT SDK to simplify multitasking programming

Bring your product to live service enabled


AREG IoT SDK (or AREG SDK) is an Object Remote Procedure Call (ORPC) based, lightweight real-time asynchronous communication framework written in C++ that simplifies multitasking and service enabled applications development for embedded and high-end machines. AREG SDK enables mist computing at the edge of the network, where devices connect to IoT fog network not only as traditional clients, but as thin servers and provide device specific services.

More than embedded

When we were designing AREG SDK, the guiding principle was to create a framework to develop embedded applications that intelligently interact at the edge of the IoT network. To keep application design homogeneous, we defined Local services for inter-thread and the Public services for inter-process communications. As a base of IPC we used multicast routing (MCR) network communication model to have combined features of client-server and subscriber-provider (publisher-subscriber) models. In MCR network client-server nodes have logical connections and every node can be a mixture of logical servers and clients. This approach helps to create a fault tolerant, scalable and distributed system of meshed services running directly on connected Things.


The major features of AREG SDK to benefit:

  • A combination of request-response and broadcast communication, and subscription service.
  • Transparency of service location, which also eases the creation of a simulation and a test automation.
  • Automated service discovery, automated messaging and dispatching, featured logging and code generator.

Challenges to solve

Traditionally, IoT devices are connected clients of cloud or fog servers to stream data from sensors for further processing. Since data is generated and collected at devices, it makes sense to provide network accessible (public) services directly on Things. Such a concept changes the role of connected devices and is a good foothold to provide robust solutions such as:

  • Increased data privacy, which is an important factor for sensitive data.
  • Decreased data streaming, which is a fundamental condition to optimize network communication.
  • Autonomous, intelligent and self-aware device development by providing network services directly in the environment of data origin.

Software build

AREG SDK provides Eclipse for C/C++ Developer project files for POSIX, and Visual Studio project files for Windows versions of the framework and examples. The default settings of provided project files are enough to compile all.

In case of Visual Studio, please select appropriate Solution Configuration in IDE toolbar to use the right PlatformToolset. For details on how to import projects, build and integrate framework, run examples, configure logging and multicast routing, please refer to document.


The AREG SDK contains various examples to demonstrate features of the framework. The examples are listed in the examples/ document.


AREG SDK is dual-licensed under commercial and free open source licenses. The commercial license gives the commercial support, full rights to create and distribute software without open source license obligations. For more details of licensing see LICENSE.txt file.

  • Integrate google test in CMake

    Integrate google test in CMake

    Goal Integrate Google test in the AREG SDK to star developing unit tests.

    Motivation The unit tests are used to test small functions / functionalities and it is an effective tool to find and fix bugs. Applications having high rate of unit test code coverage are quite stable. Our minimum goal is to have high rate of code coverage of base module, which contains collection of bases objects.

    Background information AREG SDK is possible to compile via cmake. The GTest contains well description how to integrate it in the project via CMakeLists.txt. In addition, there are very many projects that can be an example of integrating GTest.

    Wrong import and export flags of areg library

    Precondition Merged the latest code and cmake changes (issue #28) in the 20220701-candidate branch to make a build.

    Actions Make a build using CMake

    Expected Compilation with no warnings and errors.

    Result When compile examples, see the warning message: WARNING: None of preprocessor defines are set. By default sets EXP_AREG_DLL. See GESwitches.h file of AREG API Core This may happen only when none of these options is set: EXP_AREG_DLL, EXP_AREG_LIB, IMP_AREG_DLL, IMP_AREG_LIB


    1. When compile areg-sdk frameworklibrary as shared library ( / areg.dll) the flag must be EXP_AREG_DLL, all other modules must have flag IMP_AREG_DLL
    2. When compile areg-sdk frameworklibrary as static library (areg.a / areg.lib*) the flag must be EXP_AREG_LIB, all other modules must have flag IMP_AREG_LIB

    Only in these cases there will be no warning. Otherwise, there will be a problem compiling for Windows OS, which requires precise import / export flags.

  • Copy config files after compilation

    Copy config files after compilation


    1. After compilation, the developer should be able to start any project without additional effort. At this moment, to start IPC project or to configure logging, after compilation with cmake, the developer needs manually create config subdirectory and copy log.init and router.init files in the folder of binaries. For example, compiling with msvc and make automatically do this action.
    2. make under Linux compiles and creates binaries with extension .out and msvc compiles binaries with extension .exe.
    3. Both, make and msvc compile with incremental build, which is much faster and does not require to recompile all projects.

    What to do

    1. After compilation of binaries with cmake, create config subfolder in the binary output folder bin (i.e. in bin/config) if it is not existing, and copy files log.init used by logging and router.init used for IPC.
    2. When compile under Linux, add .out extension to executable binaries, i.e. the mcrouter is mcrouter.out. No need to make this change for Windows, because the compiler automatically adds extension .exe.
    3. Support incremental build with cmake at least for Debug configuration, so that there will be no need to rebuild all projects after each small change.

  • Fixed compilation with VS Code and fixed application start

    Fixed compilation with VS Code and fixed application start

    This closes #64

    Description There where 2 critical issues described in bug #64

    1. The examples 10 and 11 where not compiling with VS Code under Windows (cygwin compiler).
    2. Other compiled applications where immediately crashing on start.

    Changes made

    1. The examples where not compiling because the compiler was requiring to import ProxyBase::Listener class, even if it is declared as private. The fix is import class: AREG_API class Listener.
    2. All examples where crashing creating stackdump files. It required multiple fixes. The reason was static objects that are created before main. Some of them where referring to other objects, which were not initialized yet. And this was causing application crash. The fixe is instead static variables use static methods that return statically created objects like this:
    Process & Process::getInstance( void )
        static Process _theProcess;
        return _theProcess;

  • Adding examples into CMake build

    Adding examples into CMake build

    CMake build

    Good morning @aregtech and @biwiki, hope you're doing well.

    I would like to present latest progress on CMake integration to areg-sdk.


    • Rest of examples from 10_locsvc through 16_pubfsm added to CMake build routine.
    • Generated outputs would be part of product tree.
    • Few improvements on configurations happened for better solution.

    Next step

    • At this point, I believe CMake could be a trustworthy build system for areg-sdk - naturally, after being tested and modified as you desired - and could replace Makefile buiild.
      • Of course, there's always some bugfixes and improvements to make, nevertheless with current state; we could move on for now and rest could be done by small bugfixes.


    For testing result I have used following commands:

    $ cmake -Bbuild # Creates build directory for cmake configs.
    $ cmake --build build -j 4 # Builds areg-sdk core and examples by default.

    Output files will stay in product/<build-type> directory tree.


    Please test the build system and verify its integrity. Unfortunately, I have not proper windows machine to test Visual Studio build system; therefore, it'll be nice if you could check it out.

    As always open to any modification :)

    Extend unit tests

    Problem The demonstration of features are in the example folder of AREG SDK. But still there are many objects and many methods that are never tested. In order to test, there is a need to increase amount of unit tests.

    Actions The unit tests are integrated and should be implemented in the tests/units. Each .cpp file should contain one test name. The tests are added in the CMakeFiles.txt by calling addTest() method, which automatically includes the tests in the compilation. The testing module is the AREG engine / framework.

    Note This ticket cannot be assigned to one person since the topic of unit tests is huge. Please inform for which object / topic you want to create unit test and I'll create a separate ticket and branch, and assign to you.

  • UDP/IP service and communication channel

    UDP/IP service and communication channel

    Goal After implementing the UDP/IP wrapper (issue #32), it should be integrated in the AREG SDK to support communication using UDP/IP.

    Motivation The implementation of Multiple channel communication (issue #31) will allow to use different network communication. One of the easiest and fasted way to approve multi-channel communication is integration of the UDP/IP, which in comparison to TCP/IP is faster, but less stable.

    Background information The UDP/IP should be configured in the initialization files (issue #67). After setups, the network service should be able to establish UDP/IP connection and use multi-channel communication for messaging.
