WebSocket API version 1
WebSocket API is designed to allow real-time streaming of events happening in OpenDAF runtime.
WS-API communication protocol is mostly event based. Client has to setup watches on objects of interest - measurements, commands, alarms, function modules. Once the watch is setup, WS-API server will transmit current object state, and begin transmitting state change notifications. When the client is no longer interested in given object, it can be unwatched and server will stop transmitting state changes.
Requests are JSON objects issued by the client. Each request contains request_id assigned by the client. Server executes the request and returns a response.

WatchMeasurements / UnwatchMeasurements
WatchMeasuremenets request sets up watch on measurements listed. When measurement value, timestamp or quality changes, client is notified with MeasurementUpdateNotification. Initial notification is transmitted by server right after receiving the request.
UnwatchMeasurements cancels watch on measurements listed.
WatchCommands / UnwatchCommands
WatchCommands request sets up watch on commands listed. When command value is written, client is notified with CommandUpdateNotification. Initial notification is transmitted by server right after receiving the request.
UnwatchCommands cancels watch on commands listed.
WatchFunctionModules / UnwatchFunctionModules
WatchFunctionModules request sets up watch on function modules listed. When function module state changes, client is notified with FunctionModuleUpdateNotification. Initial notification is transmitted by server right after receiving the request.
UnwatchFunctionModules cancels watch on function modules listed.
WatchAlarms / UnwatchAlarms
WatchAlarms request sets up watch on alarms listed. When alarm state changes, client is notified with AlarmStateChangeNotification. Initial notification is transmitted by server right after receiving the request.
UnwatchAlarms cancels watch on alarms listed.
AckAlarms acknowledges alarms listed.
OperateAlarms performs bulk activation / deactivations / acknowledge on alarms listed.
WriteCommands performs command write transaction.
Server responds to ReadDatabase request with DatabaseResponse containing definitions of objects requested.
Solicited response (response to request) is a JSON object always containing: - integer property request_id mirrored from the originating request - boolean property result, true = request succeeded, false = request failed
See schema file
Unsolicited (spontaneous) notifications don't carry request_id property. Server transmits them when watched event occurs.
