This manual is intended as a reference for software developers when creating asset-side agent applications that connect wireless assets using the AWP protocol to Axeda Platform.
Using this version of the AWP Toolkit requires an understanding of the Java programming language and of the asset that will run your AWP agent to communicate with the Axeda Platform. You must have experience with the operating system which the AWP agent will run on as well as the development tools for creating a Java-based AWP agent.
This guide contains the following chapters and appendices:
- Chapter 1, "Using This Reference"
- Chapter 2, "Introducing the Java AWP Toolkit", presents an overview of the AWP Toolkit and explains how it can be used to connect your wireless assets to Axeda Platform
- Chapter 3, "Using the Java AWP Toolkit", provides general instructions for using the APIs of this Toolkit.
- Chapter 4, "AWP Toolkit Classes and Interfaces", uses an example to show how your AWP agent application can use the APIs of this toolkit to publish information to the Axeda Platform, process responses from the Platform, create data (data items, alarms, locations, and events) for your asset, and transfer files to and from the Platform.
