New Coaty JS development brokerMay 8, 2019
Coaty JS release [1.6.0] integrates a new MQTT broker for development and
testing. Due to concerns regarding performance and security vulnerabilities, the
Mosca broker used previously has been replaced by
Aedes, a lighweight
barebone broker that installs fast. This broker comes bundled with the Coaty JS
framework. When upgrading your Coaty JS applications, remove/uninstall
dependency from package.json.
Coaty features remote operation callsApril 9, 2019
Coaty JS release 1.5 introduces the Call-Return communication pattern. Unlike with classic RPC, this one-to-many, two-way pattern supports non-blocking remote operations to be executed by multiple Coaty agents. The calling agent can specify a context filter that defines conditions under which the operation is allowed to be performed.
Typical use cases of the Call-Return pattern include smart distribution of computational workloads to dedicated worker agents, and non safety critical, non latency sensitive decentralized command and control applications.
A new best-practice code example on remote operations can be found here.
