With the growth of the Internet market, a number of communication protocols and corresponding equipment have developed. Due to heterogeneity issues with the use of various communication protocols, the interoperability between different devices, middleware or gateway based interoperable systems have been studied. In this paper we suggest a DDS (Data Distribution Service) based CoAP (Constrained Application Protocol) adaptor in order to solve the problem of the DDS middleware based interoperable system when used with external accessibility or resource-constrained devices. By using the CoAP adaptor, we provide a data transfer service where in previous researches were to be seen as hard to access.
