Really great to see you are interested in Mihini Do you have a specific interest in Mihini other than just curiosity? (put differently, should I add you to the list of interested parties?)
Some answers to your questions:
- Is the REST API expected to be available in the field, or will it just be a development time item?
The initial purpose of the REST API is about enabling local monitoring and control of the embedded framework.
It is intended to enable the creation of third-party tools easily (provisioning, monitoring, or other kind of development tools).
This REST API may also be used by other process running locally on the target, to get information on the health of the embedded framework, list the contained apps, etc. Given that it might prove difficult to reach/address devices on the field in a direct manner, I don't think it would make that much sense to expose the REST API to the world.
Note that this REST API is not part of the initial contribution but is something we want to work on soon, together with the M2MIWG folks.
- Will the framework be modular in that it will be possible to deploy only parts of the fwk (e.g. no application management)
Yup, it is modular. It is possible to only build/deploy parts of the framework, or build/deploy the complete framework and have some components disabled by default.
- Will the device management rely on an existing standard like OMA-DM?
At the moment, Device Management actions are performed using an homebrew protocol but a mid-term goal (as highlighted on the high-level architecture diagram) is to provide a communication/transport layer as protocol-agnostic as possible, thus enabling Device Management over OMA-DM.
Should you have any questions, they'd be most welcomed!
