PredictionIO only supports batch training of models. If you want online 
training that updates models with every new input be aware that DL4J is not 
fast enough to guarantee what some call “kappa” style online learning and PIO 
does not directly support it. 

One hack I have used with another online learning platform with a PIO template 
is to put the algorithm code in an infinite loop, asking for new input 
constantly, then training as it comes in.

There are some undocumented ways to hook into new input but they are 
undocumented for a reason so I personally would not recommend them.

So you have 2 questions:
Do you need online realtime model updates or just train with every input 
(neural nets are iterative with new input and so the later is my guess)
Are you able to modify the template code, the hack I mention will require a 
template change, not a PIO change.

Hi, PredictionIO Support:

We are planning to use PredictionIO combine with deeplearning4j. and use Java 
client SDK to have rest calls from Spring.

One question I would like to post is we need to pass training data and deploy 
in the run time instead of issue "pio train" and "pio deploy" predictionIO 
commands. So can we do those things above through Java client SDK, If yes, 
Would you please point us to some examples of template?

Thanks in advance.
