MQ Telemetry Transport Protocol for IOT

MQTT protocol is a lightweight, open and simple network protocol for the device communications. It is based on the principle of publishing messages and subscribing to topics, or "pub/sub". The protocol runs over TCP/IP, or over other network protocols that provide ordered, lossless, bi-directional connections. It was designed for the low-bandwidth, high latency networks in the late 1990s/early 2000s and its support to connect over thousands of clients to a single server. This characteristic is a suite for the devices which has very limited processing powers and limited memory, such as sensors, mobile devices, monitoring devices. Since It provides a common interface for everything, new sensors or devices can integrate very easily with the system.  



Message in MQTT is published on topics. These topics are treated as a hierarchy separate using slash(/) as a separator like in  the file system.Clients can receive messages by creating subscriptions. A subscription may be to an explicit topic, in which case only messages in that topic will be received, or it may include wildcards. 

Eg:- sensors/COMPUTER_NAME/temperature/HARDDRIVE_NAME

Two wildcards are available, + or #.


+ can be used as a wildcard for a single level of hierarchy.

  • sensors/+/temperature/+
# can be used as a wildcard for all remaining levels of hierarchy. 
  • sensors/#
MQTT defines three levels of quality of service(QoS). This QoS define how messages are travel through the protocol. As an example, we can get a parcel sending through the normal mail or courier service. Courier service assures the delivery but normal mail not providing it. 

QoS 0 - At most once delivery: With this setting, messages are delivered according to the best effort of the underlying network.

QoS 1 - At least Once Delivery: For this level of service, the MQTT client or the server would attempt to deliver the message at-least once.But there can be a duplicate message.

QoS 2 - Exactly once delivery: This is the highest level of Quality of Service. Additional protocol flows ensure that duplicate messages are not delivered to the receiving application.

Java Source Code to Change Local IP Address

Hi guys..

Try This code to change your Local IP address.


import java.io.IOException;
import java.lang.Runtime;
public class Chang_Ip {



public static void main(String args[]) throws IOException
{

String str1="192.168.0.201";
String str2="255.255.255.0";
String[] command1 = { "netsh", "interface", "ip", "set", "address",
"name=", "Local Area Connection" ,"source=static", "addr=",str1,
"mask=", str2};
Process pp = java.lang.Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command1);

}

How to preserving HTTP headers in WSO2 ESB 4.9.0 ?

Preserving HTTP headers are important when executing backend services via applications/middleware. This is because most of the time certain important headers are removed or modified by the applications/middleware which run the communication. The previous version of our WSO2 ESB, version 4.8.1, only supported “server” and “user agent” header fields to preserve with, but with the new ESB 4.9.0, we’ve introduced a new new property (http.headers.preserve) for the passthru (repository/conf/passthru-http.properties) and Nhttp(repository/conf/nhttp.properties) transporters to preserve more HTTP headers.
Passthru transporter – support header fields LocationKeep-AliveContent-LengthContent-TypeDateServerUser-AgentHostNhttp transport – support headersServerUser-AgentDate
You can specify header fields which should be preserved in a comma-separated list, as shown below. http.headers.preserve = Location, Date, Server Note that properties(http.user.agent.preserve, http.server.preserve), which were used …

How Schedule failover message processor helps for the guaranteed delivery ?

Before we talk about the failover message forwarding processor, it’s better to understand the big picture of the concepts and use cases. The Scheduled Failover Message Forwarding Processor is part of the bigger picture of themessage store and message processor.

Message Store Message Processor. WSO2 ESB’s Message-stores and Message-processorsare used to store incoming messages and then deliver them to a particular backend with added Quality of Services (QoS), such as throttling and guaranteed delivery. The basic advantage of the MSMP is that it allows you to send messages reliably to a backend service. These messages can be stored in a different reliable storage such as JMS, JDBC message stores. The MSMP powered by three basic components:



1. Store Mediator.
The Store mediator is the synapse mediator and can be used to store messages in the message store.

2. Message Store.
A message store is storage in the ESB for messages. The WSO2 ESB comes with four types of message store implementations …
