Rapidly develop Internet of Things apps with Docker Containers
The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been driven in part by the commoditization and accessibility of wireless modules, sensors, and microcontrollers. But the IoT isn't just big news for device manufacturers. As the number and variety of connected devices increases, the demand for applications to interface with those devices and to process the vast quantities of data that they produce is also increasing. To match this growing demand, web and mobile application developers will need to start to develop for the IoT and adapt their current development practices to meet the challenges of this new application area. One such development practice is the use of containers. Containers are a lightweight approach to virtualization that developers can apply to rapidly develop, test, deploy, and update IoT applications at scale.

The IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation mobile application framework provides integration functionality through its adapter mechanism. MobileFirst adapters are components that are deployed to the server on the MobileFirst platform to access enterprise services. They serve as a mediator or gateway between mobile applications and enterprise systems, receiving requests from mobile apps and returning to them the data fetched from the enterprise. IBM WebSphere Cast Iron Cloud integration products enable you to integrate cloud and on-premise applications quickly, reduce integration costs, and optimize resources and productivity in software as a service (SaaS) and cloud models. This article illustrates an integration between IBM MobileFirst and Cast Iron.
