API via model-server

This project provides a custom REST API implemented in Quarkus that wraps a model-server instance. The REST API abstracts the generic model-server API for providing the dashboard example with usable data. The provided REST API conforms to the API spec in the openapi.yaml.


You can build this subproject individually from the parent folder via all gradle:

./gradlew rest-api-model-server:build

Before starting the REST API, a model-server instance needs to be running. The example from the MPS folder has to be deployed on this instance in a repository call courses. Once these preconditions are met, the REST API can be launched with:

./gradlew rest-api-model-server:run


For simple testing you can curl the data provided by the API for example:

🧾 Unfold for examples
$ curl -s -X GET "http://localhost:8090/rooms" -H  "accept: application/json" | jq
  "rooms": [
          "roomRef": "r:ce161c54-ea76-40a6-a31d-9d7cd01febe2(unused)/4128798754188058347",
          "name": "Einstein",
          "maxPlaces": 42,
          "hasRemoteEquipment": true
          "roomRef": "r:ce161c54-ea76-40a6-a31d-9d7cd01febe2(unused)/4128798754188058349",
          "name": "Schrödinger",
          "maxPlaces": 420,
          "hasRemoteEquipment": true

Alternatively you can now start the Dashboard to consume this API.

Introspecting the websocket communication

If you want to observe the updates sent on the web socket, you can use wscat to get some insights when updates are sent.
