Push for BIS and BES

Hi all,

 

I've developed an app that listens for public pushes using the Blackberry push service.  This works amazingly well on regular devices.  However, when I tried the same app on a device registered on a Corporate BES, it does not receive any push messages in my app.

 

Is there something I need to do to enable a device on a BES to listen for these messages?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

G.

Re: Push for BIS and BES

BlackBerry Push Service only pushes to BIS enabled devices. If the devices you are pushing to are only BES you must use MDS-CS to push.

Re: Push for BIS and BES

Does that mean that my public app will not run on any device registered on a BES server?

Re: Push for BIS and BES

It will work fine if that BES device has BIS service books. If it's a BES only device then you'll need to create a second version of your application specifically for those BES devices.
