Protocol - examples

Twin communication pattern

The typical communication pattern when interacting with the Bosch IoT Things service using the Ditto protocol is composed of multiple correlated “signals”.
Therefore, each part has a correlation-id header which can be used to associate related parts.

  • [1] A command is sent to the Bosch IoT Things service which is then processed.
  • [2] The response given to the issuer of the command would be either a success response or an error response.\ Any response contains a “status” and an “error” field which identify the error that occurred.
  • [3] In addition an event is triggered.\ The event describes that the change was applied to the thing.\ Interested parties can subscribe for such events and follow the evolving thing.

note Events caused by commands from a connection are not published to the same origin. The connection can receive a response, but will not additionally get an event.

Examples at Eclipse ditto

Find the Eclipse Ditto examples online https://www.eclipse.org/ditto/protocol-examples.html

They are structured as follows:

  • Command
  • Response
  • Event

tip All protocol examples are prepared for the twin channel.
In case you need to communicate to the device simply replace it with live.
