i am crossing over from the iphone world and having a difficult time figuring out how push works in BB land. with ihone push is dead simple: you get a device token (similar to a PIN on a BB) and you just push a message to that token from your server. in fact, we have a php script to push automatically on certain events. its literally 5 lines of code to connect to apple push server...
i been trying to figure out how it works for BB and it looks like things are not as simple. is there a basic "push 101" document that i am missing? our BB app has a background thread which is always running, so it would be great if i could push something to it which says: "hey, wake up and go fetch new info from the server"
also, BB push can work over BIS/BES/TCP, etc. and please tell me i dont need to sign up and pay for ISV program?
