Robo4j Brick Client Update : new SETUP service

  Before JavaOne 2016 conference there will be available new release, but currently development focus is on properly and easy to use working usage of Robo4j. 
  Robo4j Client module is basically based on agents. One of those agent is responsible for the system configuration. 
  On the Lego Brick is running Robo4j Client Module as the program executed inside the LejOS container. The new SETUP service can is available over the web browser by requesting link:


  By calling this service the agent responsible for the Brick configuration (configuraiton agent) broadcast the brick setup to the agent responsible for the web page generation (web agent).  Web agent is calling internal services to properly generate simple view as an HTML output. For the HTML output is used Robo4j templating service.

  User has any time an overview how the Robot was created.
This service is intended to allow in the future full dynamic system reconfiguration.

Stay Tuned!

JavaOne4Kids and JavaOne :: Robo4j will be there proudly announces that it takes a 2 hours long slot at JavaOne4Kids as part of JavaOne conference. It's great step for the robotics framework to prove its simplicit in building robotic system. 
  The framework currently offers for Lego EV3 the RESTlike API and RMI API. Those APIs allow to access Lego EV3 Brick hardware which will be the core of the Robot. But such functionality is not all what Robo4j framework offers. 
  Beside the APIs Robo4j allows to the connection with Graph Database Neo4j and other databases are coming to be supported soon, such as SQL, NoSQL and etc.
  The Robo4j team is currently working on session details. The main goal is to introduce framework as the solid upcoming fully capable framework for Internet Of Things like systems develoment. 

Stay tuned!
