Subject [jira] (EDGENT-375) Want a Watson IoTP device connector that uses HTTP
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2017 19:05:51 GMT
Dale LaBossiere created EDGENT-375:

             Summary: Want a Watson IoTP device connector that uses HTTP
                 Key: EDGENT-375
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/EDGENT-375
             Project: Edgent
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Connectors
            Reporter: Dale LaBossiere

Use case: I want to be able to write an Edgent device application that connects to the IBM
Watson IoT Platform and publishes device events using its HTTP based protocol.  That would
eliminate the need for my Edgent device to have an MQTT client installed.

The current Watson IoT Platform connector, [IotpDevice|https://github.com/apache/incubator-edgent/blob/master/connectors/iotp/src/main/java/org/apache/edgent/connectors/iotp/IotpDevice.java]
supports the MQTT based protocol.

Adding support for an HTTP-based WIoTP connector would likely involve creating a class like
"IotpHttpDevice implements IotDevice".  The IotDevice "events()" methods would use WIoTP HTTP
publishing mechanism.  WIoTP does not support subscribing to device commands using HTTP so
the IotDevice "commands()" method would be documented to throw UnsupportedOperationException.
