The CeBIT 2011 is over. Welcome CeBIT 2012.

March 10th, 2011

University of Rostock

The CeBIT 2011 is over and we proudly showed what is possible with the WS4D frameworks. An Pulse/SpO2 sensor using 6LowPAN and a remote controlled window live from the Embedded 2011 were the highlights.
We showed the total lineup from small devices using the uDWPS up to the newest App for Android using the JMEDS Stack.
PipesBox was used to control the window via a twitter API. That was awesome. Feel free to use our open source stacks and get infected by the web service idea and get curious for the CeBIT 2012.

OSGi integration for JMEDS released

April 27th, 2009

The current implementation of the integration of our java multi edition stack (JMEDS) into OSGi was now released as v0.0.1 and can be downloaded here. It can be used to distribute the services of an OSGi plattform, use OSGi services with DPWS clients and integrate DPWS devices into OSGi. As usual, feedback like suggestions or bug reports are always highly appreciated (Please feel free to use the trackers and forums located on our sourceforge project page).

Back from OASIS WS-DD meetings and CeBIT

March 13th, 2009

We are back  from the OASIS WS-DD interop / face-to-face meeting and the CeBIT IT exhibition in Hannover.

During the WS-DD meetings (23.-26.2. hosted by Canon at their Santa Ana, CA campus) we tested the security part of DPWS with our ws4d-gsoap toolkit. The changes will be part of a new release described later. During the face-to-face we continued the standardization work to accomplish the version 1.1 of DPWS, WS-Discovery and SOAP-over-UDP specifications until June. As you can see on the issue list, most issues are solved. So the deadline at June looks good.

During the CeBIT exhibition in Hannover we introduced our new and easy to use composition tool to create new applications in device scenarios. This time our main focus was the health care scenario. Our compositione tool called pipes attracted a lot of attention. We plan to release this tool as open source soon, so you can connect your DPWS capable devices with each other, with regular web services, web 2.0 services or even other devices that don’t support DPWS!

Apart from that we look for new application domains of DPWS. One such new application domain is distributed OSGi. So we are developing an integration of our java multi edition stack (JMEDS) into OSGi. It can be used to distribute the services of an OSGi plattform, use OSGi services with DPWS clients and integrate DPWS devices into OSGi. We are planning to release this extension soon.

To sum up our plans for the near future:

  • Release version 0.8 and 0.7.1 of ws4d-gsoap. Version 0.8 supports the latest version of the WS-DD specifications and has new features like DPWS security support, scope matching support, lwIP support, fixed interoperability issues with vista and windows 7 and maybe RTnet support. Version 0.7 simply fixes basic bugs related to the build system.
  • Release ws4d-pipes
  • Release OSGi integration for JMEDS

New JMEDS Demo Applications (Mobile Phone Scenario) available

October 26th, 2008

The latest addition to our Sourceforge filereleases is a complete scenario consisting of three example applications written with JMEDS: a mobilephone application, a remote display and a remote keyboard. The devices are immediately runnable for testing purposes. The scenario should demonstrate some of the remarkable JMEDS features. (Note: At the moment, the display and keyboard device is only runnable on Windows based systems.) Get it here. Click on the thumbnail below to see a screenshot of the scenario.
