Sending messages to HipChat


I used the old way to send messages:

client = new HipChat(accessKey);


Room room = client.getRoom(roomID);

         UserId from = UserId.create(userID, name);

         if(room != null){

          room.sendMessage(message, from, false, Color.PURPLE);





Are there examples on how to do this with the new JSON API?
