Re: Push Notification

[ Edited ]

Hello @muhammadsadek


The server-side push application called, "Push Initiator" will send push messages to BlackBerry10 clients with the client-side having a "Push-enabled application" to receive the messages.


The Push Initiator may be further investigated  by looking at the Push Service SDK [PDF]


There is a great blog piece on client/server-side for push application process across BlackBerry10 platforms by @gbeukeboom and also one by @alexkinsella64 on writing client-side Push-Enabled Applications using Push for HTML5/WebWorks  I recommend taking the time to read and sample the content as well as explore the Push resource links mentioned within the articles.  


Sample applications demonstrating the Push Notification client/server framework  for your Platform of choice:

BlackBerry HTML5/WebWorks
