Beta1 of the UnifiedPush Server 1.0.0 released

Today we are announcing the first beta release of our 1.0.0 version. After the big overhaul, including a brand new AdminUI with the last release this release contains several enhancements:

  • iOS8 interactive notification support
  • increased APNs payload (2k)
  • Pagination for analytics
  • improved callback for details on actual push delivery
  • optimisations and improvements

The complete list of included items are avialble on our JIRA instance.

iOS8 interactive notifications

Besides the work on the server, we have updated our Java and Node.js sender libraries to support the new iOS8 interactive notification message format.

If you curious about iOS8 notifications, Corinne Krych has a detailed blog post on it and how to use it with the AeroGear UnifiedPush Server.

Swift support for iOS

On the iOS client side Corinne Krych and Christos Vasilakis were also busy starting some Swift work: our iOS registration SDK supports swift on this branch. To give you an idea how it looks, here is some code:

func application(application: UIApplication!, didRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithDeviceToken deviceToken: NSData!) {
  // setup registration
  let registration = 
  AGDeviceRegistration(serverURL: NSURL(string: "<# URL of the running AeroGear UnifiedPush Server #>"))

    // attemp to register
    registration.registerWithClientInfo({ (clientInfo: AGClientDeviceInformation!) in
        // setup configuration
        clientInfo.deviceToken = deviceToken
        clientInfo.variantID = "<# Variant Id #>"
        clientInfo.variantSecret = "<# Variant Secret #>"

        // apply the token, to identify THIS device
        let currentDevice = UIDevice()

        // --optional config--
        // set some 'useful' hardware information params
        clientInfo.operatingSystem = currentDevice.systemName
        clientInfo.osVersion = currentDevice.systemVersion
        clientInfo.deviceType = currentDevice.model
        },

        success: {
            println("UnifiedPush Server registration succeeded")
        },
        failure: {(error: NSError!) in
            println("failed to register, error: \(error.description)")
        })
}

Demos

To get easily started using the UnifiedPush Server we have a bunch of demos, supporting various client platforms:

  • Android
  • Apache Cordova (with jQuery and Angular/Ionic)
  • iOS

The simple HelloWorld examples are located here. Some more advanced examples, including a Picketlink secured JAX-RS application, as well as a Fabric8 based Proxy, are available here.

For those of you who that are into Swift, there Swift branches for these demos as well:

Feedback

We hope you enjoy the bits and we do appreciate your feedback! Swing by on our mailing list! We are looking forward to hear from you!

Howdy!
