Koneki/Simulators/OMA-DM/User Guide


The OMA-DM simulator provides to simulate communications between one application and one OMA-DM server. The simulator supports the current OMA Device Management Protocol version 1.2. The OMA-DM protocol is based on a tree node. This tree contains all informations which are shared with the OMA-DM server. Complete explications of the OMA-DM protocol are available on the third section : Concepts.

Getting started

Create a new OMA-DM simulator

Step 1 : Select wizard page

To create a new OMA-DM simulator you just have to select “OMA DM Simulator” in “File” → “New” → “Other” → “OMA Dm Simulator”.

Click one the "Next" button.

Step 2 : OMA DM simulation file page

Chose the location and the name of the future simulator file. Click on the “Next” button.

Click one the "Next" button.

Step 3 : Device configuration page

This page allowed to f</span>ill some basic informations in the OMA-DM tree.


  • Server URI : the uri of the OMA-DM server you want to use
  • Server login : the user name for the authentication on the OMA-DM server
  • Server password : the user password for the authentication on the OMA-DM server
  • Device ID : the id for the device which is simulate

Click one the "Next" button.

Step 4 : Device informations page

In this page you can fill basic information about the device. The Device Id must not be empty. Others data could stay empty.


  • Device id : it's the same ID than the device ID in the previous step
  • Manufacturer Nane : the manufacturer's name of the device
  • Model Name : the model's name of the device
  • Language : the current language of the application

Click one the "Next" button.

Step 5 : Device details page

In this page you can fill other information about the device.


  • Device Type : The device ID type. Two others type are recognized ; "IMEI", "MAC". All other words will be translate in "FREE"
  • OEM Name : the OEM's name of the device
  • Firmware Revision : the current firmware version number
  • Software Revision : the current software version number
  • Hardware Revision : the current hardware version number

Click one the "Finish" button.


The OMA-DM protocol

OMA-DM Protocol is based on the HTTP protocol. It exchanges xml data between the client and the OMA-DM server.

Data are saved in a nodes tree on the device and the OMA-DM server. Some specific nodes must have to be present the tree. Some others are just optional. The protocol provide some commands which could be send by the server and execute on the device. Bellow is the list of commands which are supported by the simulator

  • Add
  • Delete
  • Get
  • Replace

These commands are executed by the device just during the connection the connection of the device on the server.

Currently, the simulator support basic authentication on the OMA-DM server.

The complete specifications of the OMA-DM protocol and the nodes tree are available here : www.openmobilealliance.org/Technical/current_releases.aspx


Simulate one connection by the device on the OMA-DM server

The simulator is divided in three tags. The first tag is Configuration. It allows to fill basic information to authenticate the device on the server.

The second tag is Simulation. It allows to edit the OMA-DM tree. By default, the simulator create one basic tree with non optional nodes. You can find information that you filled in the Configuration tag in the OMA-DM tree. Bellow is the correspondence between information in the Configuration tag and the OMA-DM tree : Server URI : ./DMAcc/AppAuth/ServerID Server login : ./DMAcc/AppAuth/Default/AuthName Server password : ./DMAcc/AppAuth/Default/AuthSecret Device ID : ./DevInfo/DevId

The node "./DMAcc/AppAuth/Default" is an optional node. AuthName and AuthSecret can be saved anywhere in the "./DMAcc/AppAuth" node.
