HowTos

Eight Key Open-Source Internet of Things Projects

Based on open source and open standards, the Eclipse Open IoT Stack for Java simplifies IoT development by enabling Java developers to reuse a core set of frameworks and services in their IoT solutions. In addition to the core Open IoT Stack, a set of industrial frameworks are available to accelerate the process of creating home automation and SCADA factory automation solutions. "Our goal with this is to ensure that Java developers have a free and open-source platform for building IoT solutions," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of Eclipse. Read more
