I am interested in the Events and Actions API of the AllJoyn Framework to allow multiple Thin Clients to talk to each other. So, I built and run the Event Picker application on my Android device to see how it works. My questions are:

~ Is it possible and recommended to integrate the functionality of this app to an AllJoyn Standard Library application (iOS and Android) which is acting as a Control Panel to available Thin Client services?

~ What are the steps to port this Event Picker application into iOS?

Thank you very much in advance for the response.

Best Regards, Darrell

Not a full answer, but I don't think it would be a good idea to run the rule engine in a mobile device : rule would only be executed when this device is on the network and the application is running in the foreground. This is really not appropriate for a home automation scenario, where you want your interactions to happen at any time.

The application provided is only a sample, if you want to implement something similar in the real work, you need :

  • either an always on box that can host the rule engine, probably with a specific interface so that you can configure the rule from a mobile phone
  • or distribute the rules on every device, but in that case each device needs to implement a specific service to configure and execute it's rules.
