NOTE: The OCF liaison meetings have been suspended temporarily, as the principals will be busy discussing the more general protocol bindings in a separate set of meetings. We will resume the more specific OCF calls once the protocol binding framework has been put in place.

OCF liaison meetings are suspended until further notice. However, we will resume once the protocol bindings have been solidified and can also hold a meeting if something urgent comes up. Please continue to create agenda items below and we will deal with them when the meetings restart.

F2F Preparation

What version of IoTivity?

  • Version that works with iotivity-node, as we want to get everything working in Javascript to be consistent with Wot Scripting API.

1. Prepare a hackable OCF device

  • One idea: reuse device from Smart Home (this is in Javascript...)
  • Could write one from scratch, eg. a temperate sensor
  • Are code samples in C++, but JavaScript (using iotivity-node) would be better
  • Need both an implementation and a data model (ideally in Swagger)
  • Introspection not working... will have to write a Swagger file manually

2. Generate a Thing Description for the OCF Device

  • Manual translation (we want to do this anyway as a test case)
  • Automatic translation option 1: extend Dave's tool...
  • Automatic translation option 2: swagger2x...

3. Generate a WoT interface using TD and use it to connect to the OCF device

  • Requires implementing some kind of protocol binding


  • Data modeling
  • Translation of OpenAPI to Thing Description (and back)
    • eg using swagger2x
  • Demonstrating using a TD to talk to an OCF device
    • Eg Smart Home demo
    • How to write Thing Description for an OCF device?
  • Protocol binding
