Subject: FW: oBIX Progress: Review and Toolkits and IP


Glad to hear oBIX is such a draw. It might help if you could put together some interview questions for our review. We could decide whether it would be easiest to do a phone interview or just write out our answers for publication. What kinds of things do you think your readers want to know?

How can we best get this information to our readers?


Not sure if you notice but this was our favourite article for May in our magazine.



Thanks Aaron We know it was your writing skills not the subject matter that made it the favourite J


Our readers are very interested in oBIX.


For our May issue we had 111,443 visits to the web site with our highest ever downloads and over a million hits.

Converging Industries are very interested in what you have to say.


Can someone for oBIX or OASIS put this technical mumbo jumbo in to words with links for those that need to know more for our readers in a interview or article for our July issue?


Aaron did a great job in his May article let us do it again.

 There is some important oBIX news that I am not going to make you meet

to hear:


1) The XML committee has released a v0.12.0 draft. Aaron has requested a

little more time for what he refers to as typos, but if you have a

show-stopping comment, post it for us to see.


2) Brian has updated his open-source oBIX toolkit. See message below.


3) There is apparently a 30 day waiting period between when a committee

requests a transition in IP policy and when the official organizational

vote takes place.  While we may have voted several times on this, the

vote at the F2F in Palm Springs counts as the organizational vote to

request the change in IP. Blame the confusion on procedure on me.


As a point of order, the vote in (3) has nothing to do with when we vote

to release the draft (0.12.1?)as a proposed 1.0 for public review. That

will require 60 days before we respond to comments, so the process in

(3) will be complete before then in any case.

Subject: [obix-xml] oBIX Java Toolkit v0.12.0 posted


I posted v0.12.0 of the oBIX Java Toolkit to SourceForge:




This brings the open source toolkit up to the latest version of the spec

and sports a new alarm console which works off an



I also did a lot of work on how to map arbitrary contract lists into

strongly typed Java classes.  In the end I do what I always do when I

find the Java language too limiting - I assemble classes on the fly.

This turns out to be a pretty cool feature because you can mix and match

contracts on the fly and still get nice Java interface wrappers:


  Obj obj = ObixDecoder.fromString("<enum is='obix:Point


  verify(obj instanceof obix.Enum);

  verify(obj instanceof obix.contracts.Point);

  verify(obj instanceof obix.contracts.History);                       


Take a look at index.html for more details.


Change Log Version 0.12.0 (1 Jun 06)

 - Support for latest 0.12 object model (feeds)

 - ObixSession support for batch requests

 - Obixc generates only interfaces with contract fields

 - Dynamic class generation for contract mapping

 - obix.ui.View support for watches (with automatic cleanup)

 - AlarmConsoleView on obix:AlarmSubject
