Added by Jonathan Simon over 3 years ago

The LinkSmart development team is pleased to announce the release of the enhanced and more robust LinkSmart 2.1, now available for download. Our vision is to build an interoperability platform that facilitates the creation of cost-effective, high-performance cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things applications. LinkSmart constitutes an OSGi-based middleware for the networking of heterogeneous systems through loosely coupled web services.

The new LinkSmart 2.1 supports a broader range of configurations in terms of functionality, resource constraints and communication infrastructure, thanks to the improved modularity introduced in the previous version. LinkSmart includes now a GrandMessageHandler component to provide support for unconstrained message sizes, and a new tunnel service offers querying for services through parameterized URLs, paving the way for innovative SOAP-less applications.

In detail, LinkSmart 2.1 incorporates the following improvements:

The LinkSmart development team is working on more exciting changes to be featured in upcoming releases, such as:

  • Resource-oriented, RESTful APIs,
  • Support for structured networks, and
  • Switching to a Maven-based build chain.
