Adding CoAP to our sensor

CoAP is a very lightweight protocol, and making our sensor interact with CoAP is very easy. First, we will set up a CoAP endpoint. (An endpoint acts both as a client and a server in the HTTP sense.). We can use the CoAP endpoint, CoapEndpoint, defined in the Clayster.Library.Internet.CoAP namespace. Before our main loop, we add the following:

CoapEndpoint CoapEndpoint = new CoapEndpoint ();
Log.Information ("CoAP endpoint receiving requests on port " + CoapEndpoint.Port.ToString ());

Tip

If we want to see what communication is being established through CoAP endpoint, we would need to register a LineListener that would output everything to the console, as follows:

CoapEndpoint.RegisterLineListener (new ConsoleOutLineListenerSink ...
