About the Diameter Resource Adaptors package

The Diameter Resource Adaptors package contains all the OpenCloud resource adaptors that are based on the Diameter protocol. The supported Diameter applications are the IETF standards for Diameter Accounting and Credit Control, as well as the 3GPP Reference Points Ro, Rf, Sh and Gx. The Diameter Base resource adaptor can be used to send and receive arbitrary Diameter messages, allowing custom Diameter applications to be implemented.

The package also includes example services that use the resource adaptors, and simulators to run the examples against.
