Re: Push Service SDK or Low Level APIs

The purpose of the push SDK it to simplify the development of push applications, to me the priblemw ith using the full SDK is that you have to include so many jar file with your applicaiton when you ship it.  I decided to use the low level API so that I could reduce the number of jars I need to ship, the drawback with that is I have to develop the "working parts" myself. Personally I believe it is a good idea to understand the API you are developing with because of you don't and your application has any problems in production, you're going to struggle to support it.
