The goals of the Eclipse Kura project can be summarized as:
- Provide an OSGi-based container for M2M applications running in service gateways. Kura complements the Java 6 SE and OSGi platforms with API and services covering the most common requirements of M2M applications. These extensions include but they are not limited to: I/O access, data services, watchdog, network configuration and remote management.
- Kura adopts existing javax.* API for its functionalities when available - for example javax.comm, javax.usb, and javax.bluetooth. When possible, Kura will select an open source implementation of such API that is compatible with the Eclipse-license and package it in an OSGi bundle to include it in the Kura default build.
- Design a build environment, which isolates the native code components and makes it simple to add ports of these components for new platforms in the Kura build and distribution.
- Provide a development environment which allows developers to run M2M applications in an emulated environment within the Eclipse IDE, then deploy them on a target gateway and finally remotely provision the applications to Kura-enabled devices on the field.
Kura offers a foundation on top of which other contributions for higher-level M2M protocol implementations like ModBUS, CanBUS, ProfiBUS can reside.
