HDM SDK package includes:

  1. Sources
    • hdmclientlib. This is a C++ wrapper for the HDM SDK. It provides the partitioning management functionality demonstration using the C++ interface.
    • hdmclientapp. This is a C++ console application. Use and test the C++ wrapper for the HDM SDK in this application.
    • hdmclientinteroplib. This is a C# wrapper for hdmclientlib. It provides an in-process implementation of the core API, loading its classes and calling for its methods.
    • hdmclientinteropapp. This is a C# consoles application. Use and test the C# wrapper for the HDM SDK in this application. It contains the main entry point to example application and is responsible for operation parameters collection, operation status output, task scheduling in the thread pool and task scenario implementation.
    • hdmclientinteropexlib. This is an additional C# library for multitasking, in case you need to run more than one process at the same time.
    • hdmclientinteropagent. This is a C# process for a multitasking engine to use with a separate GUI and ENGINE threads. Includes an agent to create server-side objects and scheduling its listening method.
  2. Binary files:
    • program – compiled .dll libraries, which contain CLI for testing purposes.
    • bluescreen – compiled execution binary (.exe) for preOS functionality. C++ component for operations in bluescreen Windows mode.
  3. Drivers for low-level HDM SDK – hdmengine headers.
  4. Drivers for high-level C++ wrapper for HDM SDK – hdmclient headers.
