    Hi all,

    I'm new to ASP. NET framework, just wondering if SignalR library can be used with a database layer.

    For example, real time data from clients will be saved in some kind of database layer (SQL Server)?

    Many thanks!

    Kind regards,

    For now it seems a web API could be enough ie the client could send data to a web server using http (likely a web API) that whould then save that data to a database.

    The missing part added by SignalR is being able to send data from the server to the client  (with HTTP the server can just answer to incoming requests but can't decide by himself to "push" data to the client).
