Announcing ROS2 support for jrosclient (Java)

jrosclient is a pure Java client which allows to interact with ROS.
Previously it had support only for ROS1 (Noetic).
In new version it supports ROS2 (Humble Hawksbill) as well.

Github page

There are separate support for ROS2 Topics, Actions and Services.

For ROS2 transport protocol implementation, jrosclient relies on rtpstalk which is also Java based and does not depend on any native libraries.


Previously jrosclient supported only ROS2 services.
Now we added support for ROS1 services as well in jros1services

Release of jros2client v3

Major update is support of ROS2 CycloneDDS RMW.

Previously rtpstalk supported only RTPS versions 2.2 and 2.3. CycloneDDS 0.9.x (Papillons), which is included into ROS2 Humble, uses RTPS 2.1. Because jrosclient relies on rtpstalk for RTPS communication, it could not interact with ROS2 nodes running on CycloneDDS RMW. Major change in jrosclient v3, is update to new version of rtpstalk, which now supports RTPS 2.1 and consequently allows jrosclient to interact with ROS2 CycloneDDS RMW.
