app inventor and ThingWorx

Hi everyone do any of you have done something with app inventor comunicating with thingworx? been trying to connect oth with webservice but no success. Think the best is using Android SDK and Android studio? is there any news about ThingWorx mobile?

Thanks to all

Re: app inventor and ThingWorx

I don't know much about app inventor. I first of all would encourage you to join our upcoming Thing Event which will unveil I believe our mobile strategy.

Looks like app inventor has a component called WEB? that can do GET and POST requests, I would use that to get the data from Thingworx to your app.

Thanks Pai

I'll check the Thing Event for sure as i'm really waiting something of Mobile. You are right app inventor with web can pull data from TWX i already did that and worked. The put/post is what i'm working now and i dont know what is the structure for the REST API call tu put the inputs... is in the headers? separated by & or where do i state them. Tests with postman work wll but there i cant see where the JSON to push is added.

Thanks

Re: app inventor and ThingWorx

I didn't see PUT supported, so I recommend you create Services with Input Parameter(s) so you can write data using POST.

Re: app inventor and ThingWorx

That´s a good idea. i'll try to do that and see the result. What i was trying to do was send the location of the cellphone to ThingWorx as PUT so i could use that location of the gps for an application for a POC.

thanks
