  OpenCMW is an open-source modular event-driven micro- and middle-ware library for equipment- and beam-based monitoring as well as feedback control systems for the FAIR Accelerator Facility. Based on modern C++20 and Java concepts, it provides common communication protocols, interfaces to data visualisation and processing tools that aid engineers and physicists at FAIR in writing functional high-level monitoring and (semi-)automated feedback applications. The focus is put on minimising the required boiler-plate code, programming expertise, common error sources, and significantly lowering the entry-threshold that is required with the framework. OpenCMW takes care of most of the communication, data-serialisation, data-aggregation, settings management, Role-Based-Access-Control (RBAC), and other tedious but necessary control system integrations while still being open to expert-level modifications, extensions or improvements.
