[hono-dev] Eclipse Hono 0.5-M8 Milestone



today we have created version 0.5 milestone 8 of the Eclipse Hono [1] project.


Hono aims at providing uniform service interfaces for connecting large numbers of IoT devices to a (cloud) back end. It specifically supports scalable and secure data ingestion (telemetry data & events) and will also support sending messages to devices either one-way or request-response.


This milestone includes the following new feature:


-        The Device Registry now exposes RESTful resources accessible via HTTP which represent the operations of the Device Registration API. This is in addition to the standard AMQP 1.0 based Device Registration endpoint. In exchange, the REST Adapter no longer exposes these resources, i.e. device can no longer be registered using the REST Adapter. In subsequent milestones the Device Registry will be extended to also expose the Credentials API by means of RESTful resources accessible via HTTP. Please note that the RESTful resources do not constitute an official Hono API, i.e. the Device Registration API and the Credentials API are still defined by means of AMQP 1.0 message exchanges only. The REST API is simply provided for convenience, so that it is easier to e.g. register a device from the command line using tools like curl and/or HTTPie.



You can find a list of issues addressed here [2].


We anticipate to do a first release (0.5) supporting scalable ingestions of telemetry data and events in Q3 2017.


The artifacts are available from Eclipse Repo [3] and (later during the day) from Maven Central [4].


However, the easiest and also the preferred way of using Hono is by means of Docker images available from Docker Hub [5].


If you want to give Hono a try, follow the Getting Started guide on the project web site [6].
