A Server implementation of the OGC SensorThings API. The FRaunhofer Opensource SensorThings-Server is the first complete, open-source implementation of the OGC SensorThings API Part 1: Sensing. It now also includes preliminary actuation support.
Compliance Testing Status:
Instead of compiling the server yourself, you can also download pre-built war and jar files from:
Or you can use Docker.
There are three packages for FROST-Server. You only need either the MQTTP (all-in-one) package, or the HTTP and MQTT packages.
- For small servers, or for testing purposes the MQTTP package is fine. It contains both the HTTP and MQTT interfaces.
- If you only need the HTTP interface and are not interested in MQTT, you can use just the HTTP package.
- If you need horizontal scalability you want the separate HTTP and MQTT packages. In this case you also need a separate message bus in your cluster, for internal communication. Though if you need scalability you are probably using Docker. See below for Docker and Helm support.
See docs/architecture-packages.adoc for an overview of the differences.
See docs/postgresql.adoc for an overview on how to configure PostgreSQL and Tomcat/Wildfly.
See docs/settings.adoc for an overview of all the the configuration settings.
See docs/docker.adoc for how to use the FROST-Server docker images.
Kubernetes (Helm) support
See helm/frost-server/README.md for how to use the FROST-Server Helm chart for a Kubernetes deployment.
Standalone Spring Boot
If you prefer to not use Tomcat, Kinota Server is a Spring Boot application that makes it easy to run Fraunhofer IOSB FROST-Server in cloud environments.
See the wiki for longer installation instructions.
To compile FROST-Server you need to have a JDK and Maven installed.
- Checkout the project from github:
git clone https://github.com/FraunhoferIOSB/FROST-Server.git
- Go to the project root (The top-most directory with a pom.xml)
- Give the command
mvn clean install. This should build the war and jar files in:
