IoT Data Streams for RESTful API Web Appilication simulations

Hello,

my name is Andreas Kreouzos, and currently I am starting my MSc thesis with title “IoT Data Processing by Implementation of Web-Service in Java Spring Boot Framework”. The scope of my thesis goes around IoT devices and the data being produced by them and then making simulations to extract results, back to the clients.

In order to do so, I need to find a way in producing data in the input of my service for the aforementioned simulations to take place using HTTP requests (CRUD).

Can you give me a suggestion about approaching this issue? Should I create a separate app for the data stream creation?

As soon as, I find a way to overcome this, I must think what kind of results for each sensor should be produced back to the clients.

Thank you in advance,
Andreas Kreouzos, MSc
