Participation to these calls is restricted to members of the IWG, but the minutes are public.

The meetings are held via teleconference. The regular call-in numbers are shown below (if possible, please used caller paid numbers). There are a few local / toll-free dial in numbers, but you may want to setup a SIP client on your computer if possible.

  • North America 1-866-569-4992
  • Germany 49-692-2224-6059

  • Introduction of all the project leaders so they know each other and the projects
  • Q&A on the Eclipse project creation process to make sure everyone is moving forward with their project.
  • Identification of future points of collaboration


  • Jens and Jurgen - IBH, Eclipse SCADA
  • Mattias - ETH Zurich, Californium
  • Jan - IBM research, Concierge
  • David Navarro and Hatem - Intel, LWM2M
  • Thomas - Eclipse SmartHome
  • Wes and Marco - Eurotech, Kura
  • Andy - CloudFoundry, Paho
  • Ian - Eclipse Fdn
  • Mahdi - LAAS, OM2M

Eclipse SCADA – Jens & Jürgen

  • SCADA system based on Eclipse and OSS components
  • Industrial sites and plants with PLC
    • data acquisition
    • middleware for processing the data
    • client applications to visualize the whole data
  • Project proposed in 2013
  • Source code contributed
  • First milestone of 0.1 in the process of being released
    • Estimated release date for 0.1: next few weeks
  • openscada -> Eclipse SCADA migration is now complete

Californium – Mattias

  • Californium is a Java impl of the CoAP protocol
  • Implemented during Mattias' PhD
  • Has been used for validating IETF drafts
  • Good scalability results
  • Comes with a DTLS (security) implementation
  • Idea is now to make it a "real" open-source project
    • It is already on Github
    • Make it a bigger project and get new contributors
  • Project is in the proposal phase
    • Still looking for interested parties

Concierge - Jan

  • Concierge also started at ETH Zurich as an implementation of OSGi R3 meant to run on constrained devices
  • Code is currently being brought to R5 compliance (93% complete so far)
  • Initial contribution of the code needs some clean-up but should be done in the next days
  • Footprint is 314KB
  • Jan is def. interested in other projects using Concierge and providing feedback
  • 2 missing features so far: Resolver hooks, new way to acquire resources via bundle wiring.

LWM2M - David & Hatem

  • LWM2M is an OSS implementation of OMA LWM2M
  • David is involved in Device Management technologies at OMA
  • LWM2M targets IoT devices
  • In June 2013 a first open-source version of lwm2m was released (github)
  • Project proposed in Dec-2013
  • The implementation itself is not complete but has lots of features

Eclipse SmartHome - Thomas

  • UI, rules, persistence services, etc. for controlling and automating things
  • Eclipse SmartHome is created
  • All CQs are submitted / some CQs are still waiting for approval but check-in was granted
  • First binary build should be available "soon", most likely this quarter
  • Many Eclipse projects that SmartHome is interested in collaborating with
    • Concierge
    • Californium
    • Paho is used already
    • Kura

Kura - Wes & Marco

  • 45 CQs, most of them approved as part of the parallel IP process / 14 CQs still pending
  • Code will be on Eclipse's github repo
  • Some CQs might not be approved
    • libdbus - which is dual-licensed academic free-license / LGPL
    • dxt - graphical toolkit on top of GWT
  • First release should be in a couple weeks

Paho - Andy

  • MQTT implementaitons in Java, JS, Python, C, C++, Objective-C, Lua
  • Objective-C has just passed parallel IP
  • Paho intends to join Luna for C and Java, maybe JS
  • Standardization work at OASIS – to be concluded in the next few months
  • The teams works closely with the Mosquitto project
    • Mosquitto is an MQTT broker

OM2M - Mahdi & Thierry

  • OM2M is an open-source Java implementation of the ETSI M2M standard
  • Service capability layer for device, gateway, and network
  • RESTful design to enhance interop
  • HTTP, CoAP, and XMPP (Benjamin – not sure it got that one right, feel free to correct)
  • OSGi-fication using Equinox, build using Maven Tycho

Collaboration between projects

  • Andy: would that make sense to have kind of a cross-projects mailing-list
    • Ian suggests to start with the m2m-iwg mailing-list for now
  • Ian: is there a need for a build infrastructure for e.g building for the Raspberry Pi
    • Jens: yes! building for Windows is also a requirement for EclipseSCADA
    • Marco: would be great to have ready-to-use binaries for popular open-hw platforms
  • Ian suggests to open bugs for capturing requirements from the projects about build infrastructure and the like
  • Mattias: it would be great if the website would feature a more visual representation of how the projects are working/connected with each other
  • IoT day - April 9th
    • Idea would be to have a one-day webinar
      • If projects have resources they would like to feature, this would be a great opportunity
      • Benjamin and Ian to put together a more formal plan about this event

January 14, 2014



  • Marco Carrer
  • Ian Skerrett
  • Benjamin Cabé


  • Discussion on potential events
    • Eurotech will present Kura during IoT Day in Grenoble
    • Marco will see if Eurotech ppl from London are interested in attending FOSDEM in Brussels Feb 1-2.

Project leads sync call

  • Benjamin and Ian will coordinate with project leads to invite them to the call in two weeks time to share progress and experiences with the Eclipse process
