Hi, i had a library compiled with cMake , and a .cpp executable that use this library. The building and running is made without the use of catkin or ros architecture. I would like to import this project in a ros package in order to use it to take data and publish them through a node.

Could you pose a specific question?

As for how to create package, try

You should be able to make additions to your existing CMakeLists.txt file to add support for building with ROS. Consult

If you want to provide the capability to build with and without ROS in the same CMakeLists.txt, try switching based on the definition of CATKIN_ENV, e.g.,

  message (STATUS "Building for ROS")
  # ...
  message (STATUS "Building without catkin")
  # ...
endif (CATKIN_ENV)
