[Update] 6th IEEE SOCNE Workshop

April 29th, 2011

The 6th IEEE International Workshop on Service Oriented Architectures in Converging Networked Environments (SOCNE) has been be held in conjunction with 16th IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation (ETFA’2011) in Toulouse, France, 05.  September 2011.

The scope of the SOCNE workshop is on not only on SOAs in general, but also on (resource constrained) device centric environments, including H2M and M2M scenarios. And of course the REST folk is welcome as well :).

For more information visit the workshop website http://www.socne.org.


The proceedings of the SOCNE workshop are now available on www.socne.org. From those presenters who kindly sent us theire files, we also published the accoring slides to the papers.

The next ETFA 2012 will be held in Krakow/Poland. This is probably one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and thus maybe also the venue for SOCNE 2012?!?!?!


Announcing WS4D-JCoAP

April 14th, 2011

WS4D JCoAP WS4D-jCoAP is an implementation of the Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) for Java. CoAP is an exciting emerging protocol defined by the IETF CoRE WG, which is a RFC – Proposed Standard. To put things short, CoAP is supposed to create an alternative to HTTP for RESTful APIs on highly resource-constrained devices. While HTTP usually bases on TCP, CoAP defines rudimentary reliability features so you can run it on UDP and therefore save a lot of protocol overhead that inherently comes with TCP.

Now that you have an idea of what CoAP is (if you hadn’t already) we want to share our latest efforts on implementing CoAP. Until now WS4D-jCoAP has grown to be a complete CoAP draft 18 implementation of the client and server side and it is still evolving.

If you are curious right now or want to support us, check out the gitlab repository. Have fun!
