In February, 2013, Green Eagle and RWE initiated partnering in the development of an OPC-specific communications gateway.
The OPC-RESTful Server is an application developed by Green Eagle Solutions to be employed as a communications gateway. It integrates OPC Data Access Server communication protocols 1.0a, 2.00, 2.05a and 3.0 while on the other hand, offers a standard RESTful interface for signal reading by way of web service requests.
The project has been developed following a distributed SCRUM-based framework. The client, RWE, has been receiving several iterations of the product adding new functions and simultaneously integrating the new requirements which came up during such development. To assure product quality, various types of unit tests will and performance tests have been performed, meeting all of the objectives originally established.
