The Eclipse IoT community is making it easier for Java developers to connect and manage devices in an IoT solution by delivering an Open IoT Stack for Java. Based on open source and open standards, the Open IoT Stack for Java simplifies IoT development by allowing developers to re-use a core set of frameworks and services in their IoT solutions.
Why It Matters
Open IoT Stack for Java Details
The Open IoT Stack for Java is a set of open source Java frameworks and OSGi services. It includes the following Eclipse IoT projects:
Demo: Eclipse Foundation will be demoing the Open Stack for Java at JavaOne booth #5615
At Oracle, we are working hard to make Java the number one platform for the Internet of Things. The Eclipse Foundation’s Open IoT Stack for Java is a fantastic and welcome example of Java developers building another innovative and diverse ecosystem, this time for IoT solutions.
- Benjamin Wesson, vice president, product development, Oracle
As the Internet of Things evolves, developers need greater access to technologies and standards to deliver innovative products and services to market. Our involvement in the Eclipse Paho project, alongside the Oasis standardization effort for MQTT, will accelerate the development of Internet of Things solutions across industries. IBM MessageSight and IBM Internet of Things Foundation beta are built on MQTT, enabling the open source community, and promoting flexibility and choice for clients.
- Michael Curry, VP, IBM
Even before co-founding the Eclipse Foundation M2M (now IoT) Working Group, Eurotech embraced the open source philosophy. We have invested our development resources into creating and donating the Kura project to the community while also delivering it as a fully supported commercial offering through the Everyware Software Framework. We appreciate the innovations and contributions of the talented and generous Eclipse community and look forward to exciting enhancements and revolutionary projects in the coming days, months and years.
- Marco Carrer, VP of Software Development for Eurotech
Telekom has been an Eclipse Foundation solution member since July this year. We are convinced that we will take the development of our QIVICON Smart Home solution further forward with the support of the large developer community and its outstanding know-how. To do so we are integrating the Eclipse Smart Home project into our core platform. As we would like to promote Eclipse's work at the same time, we have not only joined the IoT working group but are also contributing to the Eclipse Smart Home project by actively participating in the open source project's development.
- Holger Knöpke, Head of Connected Home, Deutsche Telekom
Internet of Things offers numerous opportunities for developers to create new solutions using data from devices connected to the Internet. The challenge is to establish a set of standards to make effective use of the many different sources of data. Eclipse’s new Open IoT Stack for Java will make it easier for the over 3.5 million BIRT developers to access, visualize and analyze IoT data to deliver actionable information to enhance customer experience and improve operations.
- Nobby Akiha, senior vice president of marketing at Actuate Corporation.
The open IoT stack from Eclipse helps our HiveMQ customers to build their MQTT client applications on proven and rock stable solutions like Eclipse Paho and Eclipse Kura. This gives them the advantage to start from day one with their applications instead of implementing low-level wire protocols themselves.
- Dominik Obermaier, CTO, dc-square GmbH
IBH SYSTEMS uses Eclipse SCADA as the strategic platform to realize ours customers’ projects. It can play to it strengths especially in environments where the customer wants to have full control over the software and be able to customize it in any way. Additionally our approach to modularization means that a developer only needs to use what he actually requires. This in turn allows other open source, or even commercial projects to reuse our high quality implementations of industrial protocols, like Modbus or IEC 60870-5-104, without the need of integrating the whole Eclipse SCADA stack.
- Jens Reimann, IBH Systems
The Open IoT Stack for Java is an ideal platform to enable interoperability and reduce fragmentation. Our tool, Reactive Blocks supports application development with Eclipse IoT technologies like MQTT, Kura and CoAP since they provide proven and standardized solutions.
- Jone Rasmussen, General Manager of Bitreactive
Ubuntu is collaborating with the Eclipse foundation on making sure developers can easily use any of their IoT solutions both on the cloud and the embedded space.
- Maarten Ectors, IoT Strategy Director of Canonical
2lemetry is excited by all the new developments that the Eclipse Open IoT Stack is making. It allows for quicker adoption of some of the best emerging technologies in IoT to date.
- Chris Chiappone, CTO of 2lemetry
