Deacon is a push notification library for Android and Java applications. It uses the flexible Meteor web server to deliver notifications using comet technology. For more information, check out the About Page. You can also learn how we got started, or visit our repository on GitHub.
Why should I use it?
There are commercial services that offer push on Android, and Google began supporting "cloud to device messaging" in Android 2.2. If you want to run your push notifications through your server, support earlier versions of Android, or use push in your pure Java app, Deacon is for you.
