Servlet for Netlinx

Cafe Duet is a plugin for Eclipse that means you can use it to develop not only module for Netlinx, but also other Java Application, JSP, Servlet, etc.

If anyone has a try, you may go to the link below to download eclipse plugin for Tomcat.


I am trying to figure out how to write servlet for Netlinx. Anyone know how to do it?

    Interesting question... Yes, Netlinx can run servlets. This is because Netlinx Duet firmware v3.00.316 runs Jetty 4.2.x http/servlet server (servlet 2.3 specification) and I see AMX uses their own servlets there. The question is how you can deploy your own, I doubt we have sufficient rights to do this...

    The new Duet IP module for the Lutron H48 lighting system may provide a preview. The jar file contains a class called ServletHelper and there are xsl files as well. Personally I believe the ability to write interactive web clients would be a huge plus for AMX. Particularly reports, schedules, user-based security configs, etc. would be much better served being browser based vs. touch panel based.
