    How to design a thingworx extension that parses message packet from a sensor

    Hi,

     

    I am very inexperienced in Thingworx. I am creating a parser that parses message packet from a sensor.

     

    I have two questions:

    1. What sort of thing should I be creating for this parser, is it a ThingTemplate, ThingShape or something else?

    2. I know how to get the parse the message, I just don't know how to update properties of a thing in ThingWorx. From what I've been reading so far, should I create a Client to connect to Thingworx Server to update the properties? If yes then how can I find the Thingworx server's URI. (It doesn't sound right using Client within an extension though).

     

    Greatly appreciate all your helps.

     

    Nick.
