First off, I am a Java and Mobile developer just getting my feet wet with Ignition.
I am looking for suggestions on the best way to bridge the gap from a native iOS app to Ignition. Native iOS is necessary as we are getting data from an iOS accessory.
Currently my “map” looks like this:
iOS Accessory <–> Native iOS app with TCP client <–> TCP server (OPC UA?) <–> Ignition
I can make an iOS app communicate with a TCP server written in Java or Python, but I’m not sure where to proceed to hook that into Ignition. Do I need to write a OPC UA module? Is there some baked in functionality I need to know about?
Basically, where should I start, whether in the SDK or in the Designer to implement this functionality?
