push question

Hi.

 

I'm developping an application for my client.

I have now to integrate push for BIS.

My problem is that I can't find any technical help on how to do it.

 

As a registered member, I filled the form at https://www.blackberry.com/profile/?eventId=push_api one month ago but I never get any reply. I tried again yesterday ...

Is this form the first step and will allow me to access to the Push Service SDK ?

If not, how can I access to this SDK ?

Is this SDK available for all OS versions ? (my application works from OS 4.2.1 ...)

 

My client will register with RIM when we will get in production but for now, how can I develop and test my application ? Is there some RIM's test servers ?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Mike

 

PS for RIM : on http://partners.blackberry.com/web/guest/developers, the link "Jon now" at the bottom doesn't work ...

Re: push question

I am looking into the status of your application.

 

The public release should be happening soon and once it does you'll see examples and documentation on how to use this service.

 

Thanks for the heads up on the Join Now link.  I have reported this internally.

Re: push question

Hi.

 

thanks for the reply.

Would it happened sooner for me if I register as a "Blackberry Alliance Registered Member" instead of just  "Registered Member" ?

Is the process of registring quick enough ?

 

Thanks.

Re: push question

Thanks.

It gives a good Idea of how it works and how to develop for the server side part.

 

But I also have to make the client side and I thought that there will be an sdk for client-side too for OS < 5 to add the net.rim.blackberry.api.push package. I was wrong ? the push api only works for OS 5+ ?

 

Thanks.

Re: push question

While there were new push APIs released in BlackBerry device software version 5.0 that make it easier for a developer to create a push application, it is possible to receive pushed data in all versions of BlackBerry device software.

 

You can refer to the httppushdemo included with the BlackBerry JDE and BlackBerry Java SDK as an example on how an application can receive pushed content.
