I have seen this issue once when I did the tutorial. For me the issue was that my remote thing was not called RemoteVendingMachines exactly as it is printed. I left off the 's'. The simulator is hard-coded with that name for the remote thing, so any other name will not show the remote properties. So start by verifying that the name of the remote thing is spelled exactly right.
If that is not the issue, we'll have to take a closer look.
I have a similar problem which I still didn't figure out:
10:40:27.989 [NettyClient-NIO-2] DEBUG c.t.c.c.e.DispatchingClientEndpoint - API REQUEST received [endpoint id: 1] APIRequestMessage [requestId: 1821, endpointId: -1, sessionId: -1, method: POST, entityName: *SN0001, characteristic: Unknown, target: ]
and I have posted console output in ThingWorx Community Sending data to the ThingWorx Server from Java Edge SDK is not working.
Can you please tell me how to solve this problem?
