[Andrew Bythell] created a ThingSpeak Java Client for the complete ThingSpeak API. This Java Client makes it really easy for Java (or Processing) developers to add cloud connectivity to applications and non-networked devices. “The purpose of the ThingSpeak Java client is to enable non-networked Device-to-ThingSpeak gateways and other applications for performing advanced analysis of data feeds,” said Andrew.
So, by using Java, a simple “Hello World” app becomes this easy…
Channel channel = new Channel(channelNumber, apiWriteKey);
Entry entry = new Entry(); entry.setField(1, "Hello World"); channel.update(entry);
Excellent work Andrew – thanks for contributing to the Open Source ThingSpeak Community!
