does Thingworx sdk connect to a Wi-Fi or Ethernet communication device?

Hello

I'm curious about the SDK.

Debugging the JAVA SDK will create a RemoteThing on Thingworx and create and bind a Thing in the Composer.

So if you code the device using JAVA SDK, is it true that when the device is "ON", RemoteThing is created and disappears when it is "OFF"?

Is it appropriate to pass values through additional functions or classes?

Is the device same a module?

seonho Cha​: Yes, ThingWorx SDK  code can connect via WiFi or Ethernet enabled network to ThingWorx platform. Your understanding is correct that using Java SDK a RemoteThing can be created and bind to the platform. The device code when run upon successful connection to the platform will show the device as ON (Connected) and it will show disconnected ( non-connected ) otherwise. We can use the ThingWorx API in your Java code and have custom method/classes written as well for performing specific tasks.
