Wakaama intends to implement the LwM2M 1.0 standard:


The Eclipse Wakaama project has 3 committers and 28 contributors [1]. Initially the project was created in 2012 and maintained by the Intel Open Source team as liblwm2m [2]. The project has been handled to the Eclipse Foundation in 2014. Now multiples organizations have joined the project and the community have been kept growing since the beginning.

To encourage the adoption of the Eclipse Wakaama project. Some committers are working with the OMA SpecWorks organization [3] which establishes the LwM2M protocol. Committers are participating to the Device Management Group of the OMA SpecWorks which directly write the LwM2M specification. Discussions are made through dedicated Face to Face meetings multiple times during the year.

A Github repository [4] is used to manage the work. The source code and the issues can be found there. Issues are used to communicate and to handle the working tasks with the community.

Currently, the Github repository currently has 188 forks [5] and a total of 408 issues. 363 issues have already been closed. Almost half of the issues have been reported and solved by the Eclipse Wakaama community [6].

Furthermore, a mailing list is provided to discuss with the developers. This list is monitored and questions are answered.

To reduce the learning curve of those new to the project, a getting started document [7] is provided to easily build and run working examples. These examples have been written for new members which want to start using the project for their own use-cases.
