The BlackBerry Spark Communications Services provides a framework to develop real-time, end-to-end secure messaging capabilities in your own product or service.
The Spark Communications security model ensures that only the sender and intended recipients can see each message sent, and ensures that messages aren't modified in transit between the sender and recipient. Spark Communications also provides the framework for other forms of collaboration and communication, such as push notifications, secure voice and video calls, and file sharing. You can even extend and create new types of real-time services and use cases by defining your own custom application protocols and data types.
The Spark Communications SDK Components
This class is responsible for establishing and maintaining connectivity to the Spark Communications infrastructure. It provides access to the messaging, media, and endpoint management interfaces.
This class offers the Spark Communications SDK messaging interfaces. It provides methods for creating, inviting, joining, and leaving chats as well as methods for interacting with those chats.
This library offers the Spark Communications SDK media interfaces. It provides methods and events for making, accepting and interacting with voice/video calls and data only connections.

The Support Library Components
The Support library provides several reference implementations to help you get started using the Spark Communications SDK with your own identity provider.
A reference implementation that performs no user authentication.
A reference implementation using Google's OAuth 2.0 APIs to authenticate users of your application.
A reference implementation using Microsoft's Azure Active Directory v2.0 OpenID Connect APIs to authenticate a user against your application's Active Directory instance.
The Support library provides several reference implementations to help you get started using the Spark Communications SDK with your own user management.
A reference implementation that allows contacts to be managed using the browser's local storage.
A reference implementation that allows contacts to be managed using Google's People APIs.
A reference implementation using the Microsoft Graph API to access basic user information from your application's Active Directory instance.
A reference implementation for managing a user's contacts using Google's Firebase Realtime Database. This module can be used to create and maintain a user's social graph.
The Support library provides several reference implementations that meet the Cloud Key Storage requirements. If your application uses the BlackBery Key Management Service, you do not use these classes.
A reference implementation of the
KeyProviderInterfaceusing Google's Firebase Realtime Database.
A reference implementation of the
KeyProviderInterfaceusing Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB. This implementation uses the Key Provider Server example application to enforce key access permissions in order to meet the Cloud Key Storage requirements.
A reference implementation for protecting and unprotecting keys for export and import when using Cloud Key Storage. This class works with the
