I hope this helps . Your issue is about asynchronous nature of Rest api or retrofit calls while you are trying to get response synchronously.
 public void loadIssues(String user, String repo){
        ApiResponse response = mIssueRepository.getIssues(user, repo).getValue();

LiveData.getValue() returns null with Room

I think the issue was by ths following , Java POJO Object , I solve this problem through this approach
    private MediatorLiveData<List<Section>> mSectionLive = new MediatorLiveData<>();

    public LiveData<List<Section>> getAllSections() {
        final LiveData<List<Section>> sections = mDb.sectionDAO().getAllSections();

        mSectionLive.addSource(sections, new Observer<List<Section>>() {
            public void onChanged(@Nullable List<Section> sectionList) {
               if(sectionList == null || sectionList.isEmpty()) {
                  // Fetch data from API
        return mSectionLive;

Hope this helps In my application I use this ViewModel: , You can use Transformations.map()
      val messages = MutableLiveData<List<Message>>()

      val hasMessages: LiveData<Boolean> = Transformations.map(messages) {

LiveData + ViewModel + Room: Exposing a LiveData returned by query which changes over time (Through a fts search)

I wish this help you I have an FTS query in my DAO which I'd like to use to provide search in my App. The activity passes the query to view model each time the search text is changed.
val dataSet :LiveData<List<WordMinimal>>

val searchQuery = MutableLiveData<String>()

init {
    dataSet = Transformations.switchMap(searchQuery) { query ->
        if (query == null || query.length == 0) {
            //return WordRepository.getAllWords()
        } else {
            //return WordRepository.search(query)

fun setSearchQuery(searchedText: String) {
    searchQuery.value = searchedText

How to test a method in viewModel which returns LiveData value from repository

Tag : android , By : silvervino

I think the issue was by ths following , As the question is tagged as unit-testing, IMHO, expecting real data from a web service does not actually fall into the scope of unit-testing. You might call than an integration testing, however, from the unit-testing point of view, you might consider mocking the response from the function that calls the web service and verify if the method was called using proper arguments that you expect.

How can LiveData in ViewModel observe the Livedata in Repository using Transformations?

With these it helps You can ignore my other answer. The solution is using MediatorLiveData<> in your view model. You add the LiveData from the repository as a data source to the MediatorLiveData<> and call setValue or postValue (depends on if it is in the UI tread or not) in the observer onChanged callback.
Like so
            new Observer<Transaction>() {
        public void onChanged(@Nullable Transaction transaction) {
            //Updates the MediatorLiveData<> that you activity is observing
