Industrial Internet Application Development

By: Alena Traukina, Jayant Thomas, Prashant Tyagi, Veera Kishore Reddipalli

Overview of this book

The Industrial Internet refers to the integration of complex physical machines with networked sensors and software. The growth in the number of sensors used in industrial machinery has led to an exponential increase in data being captured for predictive analytics. Industrial Internet Application Development is a practical guide for developers who want to create applications that leverage the full capabilities of IIoT. You will get started by learning how to develop your first IIoT application and understanding its deployment and security. Once you’re familiar with what IIoT is, you will move on to exploring Edge Development along with the analytics aspect of the IIoT stack. In later chapters, you’ll get to grips with the deployment of IIoT applications on the Predix platform. As you cover these concepts, you’ll be able to identify key elements of the development framework and understand their importance while considering architecture and design for IIoT applications. By the end of this book, you will have the skills you need to deploy IIoT applications on the Predix platform and incorporate best practices for developing fault-tolerant and reliable IIoT systems.

The power of polyglot programming

IoT development is, by nature, polyglot, which means it is using different programming languages, frameworks, and so on, for developing IoT applications. It is essential to appreciate the power of polyglot programming and use it wisely to get the maximum mileage. In this section, we will go over some of the benefits and traps of leveraging polyglot programming to improve IoT development.

Using Java programming for microservices development is advisable due to the plethora of tools available for Java, in addition to frameworks such as Spring Boot. Java has good support for many databases, and security tools such as OAuth integration. In addition, Java has many IDEs, built tools, code coverage tools, and so on, and this make it the winner for microservices development. Java stands out as a clear winner for API/microservices development. In addition...
