Bosch IoT Things Java API

Bosch IoT Things provides a Java based client you can use within your applications. The client enables you to create and/or manipulate entities like thing or feature programmatically.

The integration API is versatile and can be integrated in other platforms, like for example in Vert.x, Akka, or OSGi.

For using the API, you need an installation of a Java Runtime Environment with version 1.8 or later.

tip As the Bosch IoT Things service is based on and powered by the open source project Eclipse Ditto, you can use the Java API functionality provided by the ditto-client.
