Silvertip is a networking library, which aims to be easy to use, while hiding the complexities of the Java NIO API. While similar libraries exist, they are either hard to use, discontinued, or part of a bigger application framework that offer an API for using different transports.


Silvertip is made available through a Maven repository. If you're using Apache Ivy, update the resolver chain in your ivysettings.xml:

  <chain name="main">
    <ibiblio name="silvertip-repository"

and declare a dependency to Silvertip by updating ivy.xml:

  <dependency org="silvertip" name="silvertip" rev="0.2.5"/>

If you're using SBT, amend your build.sbt with:

resolvers += "silvertip-repository" at ""

libraryDependencies += "silvertip" % "silvertip" % "0.2.5"


To release a version, make a clone of gh-pages branch:

git clone $HOME/silvertip-gh-pages -b gh-pages

Then deploy:

mvn deploy -DaltDeploymentRepository=mine::default::file://$HOME/silvertip-gh-pages/maven

And finally:

cd $HOME/silvertip-gh-pages
git add .
git commit -a -s
git push origin gh-pages
