New Machine-to-Machine Eclipse Project Proposed
Koneki proposes to deliver new tools for developing and deploying machine-to-machine solutions.
Koneki is a new, proposed Eclipse project that aims to provide tools to ease the development, simulation, testing/debugging and deployment of machine-to-machine solutions. Koneki plans to provide support for machine-to-machine targets interactions, such as shell access and remote debugging, and provide model-based tooling to give developers the ability to design embedded applications, including Lua tooling. According to the project proposal, Koneki will establish a data/event-driven programming component-based model for embedded development. It is expected that a M2M Industry Working Group will be created to aid industrial partners and tool vendors in coming up with a reference environment for developing M2M solutions.
The initial contribution will come from Sierra Wireless, and will include sets of plugins that support the Lua language and Linux target communication, a packaging mechanism of M2M applications examples, and a proposed component model for M2M applications. The initial contributors will be Benjamin Cabé, Gaétan Morice and Simon Bernard, from Sierra Wireless.
