2.6. Subscriber

class eprosima::is::sh::fastdds::Subscriber : private DataReaderListener

This class represents a Fast DDS Subscriber within the Integration Service framework.

Its topic type definition and data instances are represented by means of the Fast DDS Dynamic Types API, which allows to get rid of TypeSupport for each used type and eases users the task of defining and using their own custom types on the go, by means of a valid IDL definition.

This class inherits from Fast DDS Data Reader Listener for reacting to datareader events, such as matching with publishers or receiving new data from them.
