Webworks Message List for Push Notification

Hi all,

 

I am trying to develop an application for BlackBerry OS 7 or earlier.

The app could receive push notification when the app is active.

When the app is closed or running on the background, the push notification should be shown in the message list. Not only  that, there should be a red splat in app icon and the banner indicator in notification list. I have tried to use webworks.message.list feature. But, I still cannot see the notification in the message list. How to get the guid to initialize the webworks.message.list? Should I use the guid that has been used for register BBM-connected app? or I should generate new guid for webworks.message list?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

It sounds like your question is more WebWorks related than push related.

 

You might have more luck getting an answer to your question here:

Re: Webworks Message List for Push Notification

Hi

 

Other solution is to use the QuickBlox API, which has Push Notifications Module for BlackBerry

Check http://quickblox.com/developers/SimpleSample-messages-blackberry5,6,7

And also they provide support for other Mobile OS and Web, if you want to build a Cross-Platform Solution.

 

Best Regards

benitaclarissa, did you find an answer to your question?

 

I am at the same point, looking for a solution. However, I am using phonegap.

Re: Webworks Message List for Push Notification

Thanks for your reply, Jaimoto. QuickBlox is great. It has so many powerful features. But, I am using blackberry webworks to develop BB apps. Do you know the extension to show push notification on webworks application?

Re: Webworks Message List for Push Notification

Sorta have a hacked solution together,

 

I used this plugin

https://github.com/blackberry/WebWorks-Community-APIs/tree/master/Smartphone/MessageList

 

To update the messages when a push comes in. But i am having trouble when the back button is clicked and the app is closed and re-launched

Re: Webworks Message List for Push Notification

I have tried this plugin, too.

But, I can't invoke the application when I click the message.

Not only that, when I restart the application, I got message "create message failed: null".

what are the guid and message item id should be used when init the message list?

Do you find any solution about this?
