M2MLabs Mainspring is an application framework for building machine-to-machine applications like vehicle tracking or machine remote monitoring. In such applications typically a remote device equipped with sensors (e.g. gps, temperature, pressure) and actors communicates with a server application that is running the device communication protocol, device configuration, storage of data sent by the devices as well as the application business logic and the presentation layer.
Mainspring takes care of device communication, configuration as well as data storage and retrieval so that application developers can focus on business logic purely. M2M applications can be prototyped in hours rather than weeks and finally transfered to a high performance execution environment built on top of a standard J2EE server and the highly scaleable Apache Cassandra database.
