ASP.NET SignalR for Java and Android
ASP.NET SignalR is a new library for ASP.NET developers that makes it incredibly simple to add real-time web functionality to your applications. What is "real-time web" functionality? It's the ability to have your server-side code push content to the connected clients as it happens, in real-time.
What can it be used for?
Pushing data from the server to the client (not just browser clients) has always been a tough problem. SignalR makes it dead easy and handles all the heavy lifting for you.
This library can be used from both regular Java or Android applications.

Building the source
git clone email@example.com:SignalR/java-client.git (or https if you use https)
Open Android Studio, click "Import Non-Android Studio Project" and select the cloned directory
Build the project.
The signalr-client-sdk.jar will be generated inside the /signalr-client-sdk/build/libs folder
The signalr-client-sdk-android.aar will be generated inside the /signalr-client-sdk-android/build/outputs/aar folder
Running the tests:
Run the signalr-client-tests project as a JUnit test.
Using the library in a Java application:
Add the signalr-client-sdk.jar and gson library gradle dependencyto the project.
Using the library in an Android application:
Add the signalr-client-sdk.jar, signalr-client-sdk-android.jar gson library as a gradle dependency to the project.
In the code, before using the library, initialize the platform to use android-specific libraries and compatibility with older Android versions: - Platform.loadPlatformComponent(new AndroidPlatformComponent());
