Push Notification from PHP

I need to push a notification to the home screen when a new entry is added to our database. There is a PHP file on the server which adds entries into the database. How would I have the PHP file link to the push feature?


I have been looking at http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Web-and-WebWorks-Development/How-to-Create-a-Push-BlackBerry-... to try to get an understanding of push but I am not proficient with Java for the most part so I don't understand that portion. I would ideally need to just push a number, indicating how many notifications there are. For example:


PHP file adds 3 entries --> pushes the number "3" --> my listener.html file of the app receives the "3" and does 

blackberry.app.showBannerIndicator('images/icon.png', "3");


Would anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

Re: Push Notification from PHP

If RIM can provide server side functions of Natification API with PHP it's can help us developers using that API --> and it can.give.more.quality.Application to platform using that API.
