IoT File Client for Java

Introduction

The IoT File Java client allows you to manage files related to assets. Refer to IoT File Service for more information about the service.

Hint

In the IoT context, assets are referred to as entity and aspects as propertyset.
Placeholders in the following samples are indicated by angular brackets < >.

Client name: FileServiceClient

// Construct the FileServiceClient object
FileServiceClient file_service_client = FileServiceClient.builder()
                                            .mindsphereCredentials(<credentials>)
                                            .restClientConfig(<config>)
                                            .build();

try {
  file_service_client.putFile(<bytes_array>, <entity_id>, <file_path>, <ifMatch>, <timestamp>, <description>, <type>);
} catch (MindsphereException e) {
  // Exception handling
}

Alternatively, use the PutFileRequest model.
