 +
 
 +
* Benjamin Cabe
 +
* Ian Skerrett
 +
* Kai Kreuzer
 +
* Mattias Kovatsch
 +
* Scott Lewis
 +
* Ian Craggs
 +
* Jurgen Rose
 +
* Jens Reimann

* Mahdi Ben Alaya
 +
 
 +
== Build Infra ==
 +
 
 +
The goal was to discuss what projects do today for building for MacOSX, Windows, ARM, ... and what could be done to simplify project lives.
 +
 
 +
* Getting an Equinox launcher for ARM sounds like something that would be useful to projects like SCADA and possibly SmartHome (Equinox is bootstraped manually when SmartHome runs on e.g. Raspberry Pi)
 +
** People should subscribe to {{bug|431197}}
 +
 
 +
* Build for Windows and Mac
 +
** Eclipse SCADA is using Hudson Windows slave to build signed MSI installers for Windows
 +
** '''ACTION ITEM''': Benjamin will discuss with Eclipse Webmaster what is the best practice for Win and Mac build (Hudson slaves seem to be for testing only)
 +
 
 +
* Signing
 +
** Eclipse SCADA is building RPM and DEB packages already
 +
** There is no proper solution for signing such packages which need to be signed using gpg
 +
*** '''ACTION ITEM''': Benjamin to coordinate with Eclipse Webmaster to discuss the opportunity of using gpg for signing linux packages
 +
** It appears interesting to provide debian or rpm package repositories at Eclipse in a central way
 +
*** '''ACTION ITEM''': Benjamin to coordinate with Eclipse Webmaster to discuss thoughts on package repos.
 +
 
 +
== Demo ==
 +
 
 +
* Ian explained that it would be great to have a nice demonstration of our Java story for JavaOne in September
 +
* Idea would be to start collecting thoughts for a really compelling Java story, and start producing articles, demos, tutorials, ... for JavaOne
 +
* Kai Kreuzer details his vision for a SmartHome demo
 +
** already discussing with Jan from Concierge to get SmartHome running on Concierge
 +
** Paho is already being used, if Moquette comes to Eclipse SmartHome could also repackage an MQTT broker
 +
** Kai discussing with Marco on how to integrate w/ Kura
 +
* Jens explains that SCADA also plans on doing a demo together with eTrice and 4DIAC, targetting end-Sept
 +
** demo would be something more industrial, using Modbus
 +
* Scott Lewis described that ECF's implementation of standards-based OSGi Remote Services currently runs on Concierge (or any R5 OSGi framework), and that ECF has an [http://www.eclipse.org/ecf/NewAndNoteworthy.html MQTT remote services provider] currently based upon the [http://www.eclipse.org/paho Paho Java Client].  Given this, and the [https://wiki.eclipse.org/ECF existing tutorials and examples], it would be straightforward to put together a JavaOne demo...perhaps even for/with SmartHome...based upon Concierge, OSGi Remote Services, and MQTT...with standardization/interoperability being operative at all levels (OSGi framework, remoting/distribution, and messaging protocol/transport).
 +
* '''ACTION ITEM''': Ian will put together a plan of what could be done for JavaOne
 +
** Of course projects will have to be willing to provide support and help on actually implementing demos
 +
 
 +
== Misc ==
 +
 
 +
* Mattias explains he's now ready to contribute Californium to Eclipse, the current code base being now "frozen" after successful participation to IETF CoAP interop testing event.
 +
* Kai is interested in having CoAP support in SmartHome
 +
* Mahdi lets us know that two students are currently working on 1/ a CoAP Californium binding in OM2M and 2/ an Eclipse SCADA integration
 +
 
 +
* Everyone is invited to use the WG mailing list to post updates on cross-IoT-project work on the mailing list to encourage collaboration and sharing of knowledge
 +
 
 +
* Note: JavaOne CfP ends on Apr15: http://www.oracle.com/javaone/call-for-papers/index.html

*Arlen Nipper, Paho
 
*Benjamin Cabé, Sierra Wireless
 
*Scott de Deugd, IBM
 
==Discussion of MQTT related topics raised by Axeda==
 
*''High level positioning of the MQTT protocol'' (e.g. "long haul" networks). Scott and Arlen gave a brief overview of the discussion the OASIS C charter which led to describing a number of characteristics of MQTT and network topographies it is designed for. While it is well suited for wireless/constrained networks between an M2M gateway/edge and an enterprise type server, we probably want to avoid precluding its uses there, or in other network topologies. The IWG should pursue this as the topic of a white paper and it will be discussed again around MQTT-s (see note below)
 
*''Client ID:
 
**The behavior to disconnect existing clients if a client connects to the broker with the same client ID is not ideal. It would be nice if the protocol specified that the broker should auto-assign an unused client ID. Perhaps this could be an option sent in one of the header fields?
 
**It would be great if the client ID could hold at a minimum a UUID length of characters.''
 
**It was not clear that this needs to be part of the MQTT protocol Axeda will work this into a requirement set so that the IWG can understand the problem and work on a recommend solution in the Eclipse projects. Phil will take a look at the existing M2M use cases in the form of [http://wiki.eclipse.org/Machine-to-Machine/M2MIWG/M2M_Scenarios Scenarios and Problems], to see if they can be modified to include the situations Axeda anticipates. 
 
*''MQTT-S: The community needs a public reference implementation of MQTT-S. When we performed our research on MQTT around October of 2012 we were unable to find any public implementations of MQTT-S. I remember seeing that the reason for this is that there are legal issues surrounding the MQTT-S spec somewhere on the MQTT Google Group.''
 
**Scott gave an overview of the OASIS Standardization effort and how it is positioned with Paho. Community feedback so far is that MQTT-S is important, yet out of scope of the OASIS Technical Committee. It is withing the scope of Paho and agreed to take this discussion outside the IWG calls to develop a recommendation.
 
*The remaining topics brought up were deferred to a future call.

[edit] April 1, 2014 (Project leads call)

[edit] Agenda

  • Build infra and integration needs
  • Java demo at JavaOne
  • Misc

[edit] Participants

  • Benjamin Cabe
  • Ian Skerrett
  • Kai Kreuzer
  • Mattias Kovatsch
  • Scott Lewis
  • Ian Craggs
  • Jurgen Rose
  • Jens Reimann
  • Mahdi Ben Alaya

[edit] Build Infra

The goal was to discuss what projects do today for building for MacOSX, Windows, ARM, ... and what could be done to simplify project lives.

  • Getting an Equinox launcher for ARM sounds like something that would be useful to projects like SCADA and possibly SmartHome (Equinox is bootstraped manually when SmartHome runs on e.g. Raspberry Pi)
  • Build for Windows and Mac
    • Eclipse SCADA is using Hudson Windows slave to build signed MSI installers for Windows
    • ACTION ITEM: Benjamin will discuss with Eclipse Webmaster what is the best practice for Win and Mac build (Hudson slaves seem to be for testing only)
  • Signing
    • Eclipse SCADA is building RPM and DEB packages already
    • There is no proper solution for signing such packages which need to be signed using gpg
      • ACTION ITEM: Benjamin to coordinate with Eclipse Webmaster to discuss the opportunity of using gpg for signing linux packages
    • It appears interesting to provide debian or rpm package repositories at Eclipse in a central way
      • ACTION ITEM: Benjamin to coordinate with Eclipse Webmaster to discuss thoughts on package repos.

[edit] Demo

  • Ian explained that it would be great to have a nice demonstration of our Java story for JavaOne in September
  • Idea would be to start collecting thoughts for a really compelling Java story, and start producing articles, demos, tutorials, ... for JavaOne
  • Kai Kreuzer details his vision for a SmartHome demo
    • already discussing with Jan from Concierge to get SmartHome running on Concierge
    • Paho is already being used, if Moquette comes to Eclipse SmartHome could also repackage an MQTT broker
    • Kai discussing with Marco on how to integrate w/ Kura
  • Jens explains that SCADA also plans on doing a demo together with eTrice and 4DIAC, targetting end-Sept
    • demo would be something more industrial, using Modbus
  • Scott Lewis described that ECF's implementation of standards-based OSGi Remote Services currently runs on Concierge (or any R5 OSGi framework), and that ECF has an MQTT remote services provider currently based upon the Paho Java Client. Given this, and the existing tutorials and examples, it would be straightforward to put together a JavaOne demo...perhaps even for/with SmartHome...based upon Concierge, OSGi Remote Services, and MQTT...with standardization/interoperability being operative at all levels (OSGi framework, remoting/distribution, and messaging protocol/transport).
  • ACTION ITEM: Ian will put together a plan of what could be done for JavaOne
    • Of course projects will have to be willing to provide support and help on actually implementing demos

[edit] Misc

  • Mattias explains he's now ready to contribute Californium to Eclipse, the current code base being now "frozen" after successful participation to IETF CoAP interop testing event.
  • Kai is interested in having CoAP support in SmartHome
  • Mahdi lets us know that two students are currently working on 1/ a CoAP Californium binding in OM2M and 2/ an Eclipse SCADA integration
  • Everyone is invited to use the WG mailing list to post updates on cross-IoT-project work on the mailing list to encourage collaboration and sharing of knowledge

[edit] February 11, 2014

[edit] Agenda

  • Live demos on the website
  • Ecosystem promotion on the website
  • Eclipse IoT/M2M Rebranding update

[edit] Participants

  • Benjamin Cabé

  • David Sciamma
  • Julien Vermillard
  • Jens Reimann
  • Andy Piper
  • Jurgen Rose
  • Ian Skerrett
  • Hilary Tomasson

[edit] Live demos

  • The Eclipse IoT website should help demonstrate and showcase the open-source IoT technologies available at Eclipse. Benjamin suggests that project leads should think about the demo they'd have to contribute
  • Jens: SCADA team has a limited bandwidth to work on a live demonstrator over the next couple weeks
  • Eurotech
    • It's been discussed to try to have an always running version of the people counter. Hilary will synchronize with Marco
  • Mattias: it is hard to provide live/web demos of CoAP. Video would be an option
    • A test server could be hosted on iot.eclipse.org, and you could download Copper for Firefox (CoAP plugin) for doing some tests
  • Benjamin suggests to have videos of the projects that are diffcult to demonstrate live
  • ACTION ITEM: Hilary/Marco and Ian to discuss about people counter demo
  • ACTION ITEM: Ian to ping Bitreactive regarding what demo content they would have
  • ACTION ITEM: Benjamin to follow up with Mattias to setup a CoAP sandbox server at eclipse.org

[edit] Ecosystem promotion on the website

  • The ecosystem webpage draft available at http://iot.eclipse.org/ecosystem.html
  • After a discussion between Hilary and Ian, it's agreed to rework the page to list the Steering Committee members at the top of the page
  • Ian: each member company needs to provide product description, and company description
  • Mattias: could we provide an overview of the building blocks that are part of the ecosystem?
  • Ian: we need to create a better presentation of what the projects do together
  • ACTION ITEM: Benjamin to update ecosystem webpage to list SC members at the top
  • ACTION ITEM: Ian to ask members to provide content on the WG mailing list

[edit] Eclipse IoT/M2M Rebranding update

  • ACTION ITEM: Ian to create iot-wg mailing-list and subscribe everybody who's on m2m-iwg to this new list

[edit] Additional topics

[edit] Google Summer of Code (GSoC)

  • Google has a program for university students. Students are being paid for working on OSS projects (4500USD per student)
  • First step in the process is to come up with some ideas
  • Next is mentoring the students
  • IDEAS:
    • Visualization for MQTT / Ponte
    • ...
