Iotivity Simulator

This page describes the detailed information for IoTivity Simulator as follows.

Use Case

  • Developers can test the implementations without having real hardware.
  • Manufactures can provide reference resource models using simulator. Enables users/developers to test the functionality of the device first before purchasing the real device.

Sample Use case Scenario: Assume, to test the functionality of a custom use-case implementation, a large number of light & fan resources are required. Testing the implementation would be difficult as it requires more number of devices. In this case, we can use the simulator for simulating the real devices.


  • SDK support for Java API on Linux Platform.


  • OIC resources can be simulated, Using resource model definition (RAML) files.
  • Manages creation, deletion, request handling and notifications for OIC resources.
  • Changing attribute values both manual and automatically is available.


  • Searching for different types of resources available in the network.
  • Sending different types of requests both manual and automatically and displays the response payload received.
  • Validating the responses received as per the RAML file provided in automatic requests scenario.


Simulates OIC server or OIC client without requiring real hardware.
