Overview

Welcome to the technical resources and the specifications for the ETP standard.  This material is provided to help in the design, development and testing of software based on the ETP standard.  The members of the WITSML SIG have contributed a lot of time and effort to deliver ETP, as well as make available various tools to make it easier to build software based on ETP, test it and deploy it.

ETP Version 1.1

Version 1.1 was released in 2016, and it is the current version of the ETP standard. It should be used for all new developments.

ETP version 1.1

ETP 1.1

This is the current version for new and upgraded production implementations. Use with WITSML 1.4.1.1 or 2.0, PRODML 2.0 and/or RESQML 2.0.1

ETP v1.1 is an update to the successful v1.0 release. It includes minor updates to the core, streaming data and discovery protocols based on the experience gained by multiple vendors developing commercial deployments of ETP. There is also much new functionality incorporated into the specification, including a focus on security and error reporting.
The level of confidence in the developer community for protocol 4 – the Store protocol – is now considered Stable, meaning that commercial development based on it can be reasonably conducted and that backward compatibility in future versions may be possible.
Specific improvements incorporated into this release include: removal of the need for an extra Channel Streaming Start message for simple data producers, better support for a data producer to describe its capabilities, support for Avro 3.8 logical datatypes and incorporation of input from the WITSML SIG in handling of real-time and historical channel data.
Now that the four main protocols are classified as “stable”, backward compatibility will become a future consideration. ETP v 1.1 is not backward compatible with prior versions, meaning that v1.0 messages will not be valid v1.1 messages.

The previous version of ETP, v1.0, is not recommended but still supported

Resource Set

Unless otherwise noted, these resources are located in the ETP v1.1 zip file.

Document/Resource Description
1. ETP Specification Defines content, messages and behaviors of ETP.
2. Energistics Identifier Specification Describes rules and guidelines for Energistics identifiers.
3. ETP UML Data Model The entire UML data model (used to design, document and produce schemas for ETP) that developers and architects can explore for better understanding of data objects, definitions, organization, and relationships.

Developed using Enterprise Architecture (EA) modeling software (version 12), the UML model exists as an XMI file.

Information about EA, including a free EA Lite reader, is available at the Sparx Systems website, http://www.sparxsystems.com/.

4. Schemas Avro schemas as described in this document.
5. Developer resources

https://bitbucket.org/energistics/etpv1

BitBucket repository containing community-developed resources to assist in implementing ETP in various programning languages and platforms. These resources are not directly supported by Energistics but by members of the SIG communities.

ETP Version History

Previous versions of the ETP Specification that have been deprecated and/or are no longer actively supported.  New deployments/uses of a deprecated or unsupported version are not recommended. The current version should be use for new implementations.

RESOURCE SET

Unless otherwise noted, these resources are located in the ETP v1.0 zip file.

Document/Resource Description
1. ETP Specification Defines content, messages and behaviors of ETP.
2. ETP Implementation Guide Explains the migration process from WITSML 1.4.1 to adoption of ETP, initially to replace real-time transfer of log data. Includes guidance for Java and C# .NET.
3. Energistics Identifier Specification Describes rules and guidelines for Energistics identifiers.
4. ETP UML Data Model The entire UML data model (used to design, document and produce schemas for ETP) that developers and architects can explore for better understanding of data objects, definitions, organization, and relationships.

Developed using Enterprise Architecture (EA) modeling software (version 11), the UML model exists as an EA project (EAP) file.
