I wasn’t sure where to put this question,…I am new to Backendless, and get how to utilize the services for a mobile app. I am trying to see if I can replace some old server code I wrote using Backendless…this is the service that is essential for me to update:
- Need a service that can connect to an open socket xml feed. Once connected, this socket will stream xml data on various intervals dependent on real time events. The service would just need to do two things ideally:
- Process that data and store it.
- Publish key data points to a pub/sub message stream for mobile apps to subscribe to and get those events in near real time.
Not sure if there is a way to do something like that with the existing feature set in Backendless…I’ve done a bit of searching, but it’s not very apparent to me at least if that’s possible. I know Pub/Sub is supported, but the open socket connection is the bigger question here.
