Firebase provides the tools and infrastructure you need to develop apps, grow your user base, and earn money. The Firebase Admin Java SDK enables access to Firebase services from privileged environments (such as servers or cloud) in Java. Currently this SDK provides Firebase custom authentication support, and Firebase realtime database access.
