SaltyRTC WebRTC Task for Java

Java Version License Chat on Gitter

This is a SaltyRTC WebRTC task implementation for Java 8+.

For now, as long as RTCPeerConnection only works on Android, this library will not work outside of projects.

The development is still ongoing, the current version is only at alpha-level and should not be used for production yet.

For an application example, please see our demo application.


The package is available on Bintray. It includes the WebRTC PeerConnection build for the armeabi-v7a and x86 architectures, based on commit f7f8cb979b71d14daac57ef9dec4a583e99902b2 from 2018-02-12 09:03:38 +0100. The build was created using webrtc-build-docker.


compile 'org.saltyrtc.tasks.webrtc:saltyrtc-task-webrtc:0.15.0'




Instantiate the task.

final WebRTCTask task = new WebRTCTask();

Then, register a message handler:

task.setMessageHandler(new MessageHandler() {
    public void onOffer(SessionDescription sd) {
        // Handle offer

    public void onAnswer(SessionDescription sd) {
        // Handle answer

    public void onCandidates(List<IceCandidate> candidates) {
        for (IceCandidate candidate : candidates) {

Finally, pass the task instance to the SaltyRTCBuilder through the .usingTasks(...) method.

Once the signaling channel is open, create offer/answer/candidates as usual and send them through the signaling channel using the corresponding methods:

  • task.sendOffer(offer)
  • task.sendAnswer(answer)
  • task.sendCandidates(candidates)

As soon as the data channel is open, request a handover of the signaling channel:

dc.registerObserver(new DataChannel.Observer() {
    // ...

    public void onStateChange() {
        if (dc.state() == DataChannel.State.OPEN) {

To know when the handover is done, subscribe to the SaltyRTC handover event.


The library uses the slf4j logging API. Configure a logger (e.g. slf4j-simple) to see the log output.


To try a development version of the library, you can build a local version to the maven repository at /tmp/maven:

./gradlew uploadArchives

Include it in your project like this:

repositories {
    maven { url "/tmp/maven" }
