Hi,

Is it possible to create a binding for handling multiple things simultaneously?? If yes, please suggest an approach.

Regards,
Abin

I am not sure if I understand your question. Almost every binding that has been implemented supports multiple things simultaneously. What exactly is your issue?

Hi Kai,

Thanks for your response and valuable time. I thought 1 binding is meant for 1 thing. What I'm trying to do right now is to interface openHAB with Leshan server such that the end user should see the clients connected to the Leshan server and should be able to operate them from openHAB without having to operate the server directly. In this thread, https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/1071679/ you have mentioned that the right mapping should be Thing=Device. So the binding which I'm trying to develop should be able to create things dynamically, and as devices are not same, I need to create different things dynamically in the same binding. This is the scenario. I hope you understood. (I'm new to openHAB/ESH, bindings etc.).
Can you tell me the flaws in my approach, the pros and cons? Can you explain how you will approach this problem? Please share some github link of binding source code where things and channels are created dynamically.

Thank you,
Abin

Abin,

A binding that makes heavy use of dynamically created things is Homematic: https://github.com/openhab/openhab2-addons/tree/master/addons/binding/org.openhab.binding.homematic
You might also want to have a look what Marcel did on MQTT: https://github.com/marcelrv/smarthome/tree/mqtt/extensions/binding/org.eclipse.smarthome.binding.mqtt

Hope this helps,
Kai
