Bad HTTP response returned: HttpResponse ( net.rim.pushsdk.commons.http.HttpResponse@690463c3 statusCode = 400 content = contentType = null )

Hi all.

I try to send a push message, but returns net.rim.pushsdk.commons.PushSDKException: Bad HTTP response returned: HttpResponse ( net.rim.pushsdk.commons.http.HttpResponse@690463c3    statusCode = 400    content =     contentType = null     )


what i do wrong?


     List pins = new ArrayList();

            IdGenerator idGenerator = new IdGeneratorImpl();
            PushMessageControl pushMessageControl = new PushMessageControl(true, idGenerator, appId, pins);
            Content content = new TextContent(pushText);

            PapService papService = new PapServiceImpl();
            PushSDKProperties properties = getBBProperties();

            HttpClientImpl client = new HttpClientImpl();

                PushResponse response = papService.push(appId, password, appId, pushMessageControl, content);
            }catch(UnauthorizedException ex){

        } catch (Exception e) {

    private static PushSDKProperties getBBProperties() {
        PushSDKProperties p = new PushSDKPropertiesImpl();

       // p.setUsingXmlParserDtdValidation(true);
        return p;

I solved this issue in the other thread. The issue is that your PIN was not valid, you need to use the 8 character HEX version of the PIN.  Please mark this thread as solved and LIKE my response.
