m2m, MQTT, EclipseCon

This week I’m at EclipseCon Europe
EclipseCon Europe 2013
It’s great to meet all my friends from Eclipse Community and hopefully I can make it to EclipseCon NA 2014 in San Francisco.

Last years for me Eclipse was all about IDE (Java, CDT, Momentics, …) and Modeling (EMF, CDO, Xtend, Xtext, …) and OSGi (Equinox, …).

This year the focus is on m2m, SmartHome, m2m-on-wheels, MQTT … really cool stuff was presented at sessions.

As you probably know, my focus is on mobile development (business apps) for BlackBerry 10 platform.

Next friday in Hamburg I’m talking about Mobile Computing and some days later also in Hamburg I’m hacking live to demo Eclipse Momentics and BlackBerry10 Cascades.

Mobile Computing and m2m will extend the mobile world and open new challenges for developers to write cool apps no one has thought about some years ago.

There’s also starting a series of blog posts about this at BlackBerry Developer Blog and here’s a Automotive Concept Video with MQTT, Bluetooth LE and BlackBerry 10 live in action. The live-demo starts at 13:00 in the Video. The samples are available here at Github:

All of this is more like a proof-of-concept and expect cool things coming for the BlackBerry 10 platform.

On Tuesday I attended a workshop on MQTT using HiveMQ as MQTT Broker. HiveMQ is a high performance MQTT Broker and as a developer you can easy test HiveMQ with 25 concurrent  users for free.

The BlackBerry10 samples above are using the test.mosquitto.org MQTT Broker. If you want to see what happens at MQTT Server side, you can easy install HiveMQ. From the Github project of the workshop you can use the HiveMQ zip and instructions HowTo install on Windows, OSX or Linux. Then in your BB10 samples use the IP where you installed HiveMQ instead of test.mosquitto.org. Runs out of the box.

I will write another blog HowTo use a BlackBerry 10 device as MQTT Dashboard together with the Java Clients from the workshop above – then you’ll see Java and C++ (BB10) – Clients work together using HiveMQ.
