About this Project
The Gateway is a network gateway created to provide a single access point for real-time web based protocol elevation that supports load balancing, clustering, and security management. It is designed to provide scalable and secure bidirectional event-based communication over the web; on every platform, browser, and device.
A set of client APIs are provided in the following repos.
- Objective-C SDK for WebSocket
- Android and Java SDK for WebSocket
- Java SDK for AMQP 0-9-1
