Modifying JPachube.jar to point to GroveStreams

Preamble

As explained in the XBee blog, I have been following the examples in the book Building Wireless Sensor Networks which culminates in a Pachube based system. However, as already explained in Xively – No Thanks!, Xively bought Pachube, and it is broken, so the whole project is dead, essentially. Enough has been written about this already.

Using GroveStreams instead is a great solution, but requires the re-writing of the Pachube Processing library, JPachube, to point to GroveStreams, instead of Pachube. This is how you achieve that. Continue reading Modifying JPachube.jar to point to GroveStreams

Xively – No Thanks! GroveStreams – Yes Please!

Preamble

Again from Building Wireless Sensor Networks, a project makes use of Pachube, to display data streamed from XBee temperature sensor nodes. Osmos/Pachube was a great little setup, until it was bought by Xively. Big business introduces cost cutting measures (Unfortunately, Xively is neither free, nor open source), such as: Continue reading Xively – No Thanks! GroveStreams – Yes Please!
