A simple pusher.com REST client in java This code is a simplified version of Play-Pusher but here using Apache HttpClient instead of the Play framework. Usage is straightforward. See the references and the code for more details. Executing the demo program: mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass=pusherclient.Main -Dexec.args="appId key secret channel event message [message ...]" Of course you need to provide your Pusher API details and have some subscribers (or use the Pusher debug utility) to see the full effect. Thank you Regis Bamba  for making this task much easier ;)  https://github.com/rhb9/Play-Pusher  http://hc.apache.org/httpcomponents-client-ga/index.html  http://www.playframework.org/  https://plus.google.com/100957460389037677883/posts/MSP6UimXifx Change log 2011-08-20 first version.
