This talk will present a set of applications for CSS built on top of the services provided by the ChannelFinder, a directory service for control system, and PVManager, a client library for data manipulation and aggregation. ChannelFinder Viewer allows for the querying of the ChannelFinder service, and the sorting and tagging of the results. Multi Channel Viewer allows the creation of plots from the live data of a group of channels.

EPICS version 4 extends the functionality of version 3 by providing the ability to define, transport, and introspect composite data types. Version 3 provided a set of process variables and a data protocol that adequately defined scalar data along with an atomic set of attributes. While remaining backward compatible, Version 4 is able to easily expand this set with a data protocol capable of exchanging complex data types and parameterized data requests. Additionally, a group of engineers defined reference types for some applications in this environment. The goal of this work is to define a narrow interface with the minimal set of data types needed to support a distributed architecture for physics applications, data acquisition, and data analysis.
