Today we are extremely happy to announce an all new AeroGear UnifiedPush Server!
The UnifiedPush Server comes with a completely rewritten Angular.js based UI and is now powered by Keycloak! Thanks to the Keycloak team for the great work they delivered helping the AeroGear team to make the Keycloak integration happen.
Getting started w/ the new server is still very simple:
- Setup a database (here is an example for the H2 Database engine. Copy into $JBOSS/standalone/deployments)
- Download the two WAR files (core and auth) and copy into $JBOSS/standalone/deployments
- Start the JBoss server
The 0.11.0 release contains a lot of new features, here is a more detailed list:
- Keycloak Integration for user management
- Angular.js based AdminUI
- Metrics and Dashboard for some Analytics around Push Messages
- Code snippet UI now supports Swift
- and a lot of fixes and other improvements! See JIRA for all the items
Besides the improvements on the server, we also have some Quickstarts to help you get going with the Push Server
- Push HelloWorld for Android, Apache Cordova and iOS (ObjC and Swift)
- Push-enabled Mobile Contacts Database
The HelloWorld is a set of simple clients that show how to register a device with the UnifiedPush Server. On the Admin UI of the server you can use the “Send Push” menu to send a message to the different applications, running on your phone.
Mobile Contacts Quickstart
The Mobile Contacts Quickstart is a Push-enabled CRUD example, containing several client applications (Android, Apache Corodva and iOS) and a JavaEE-based backend. The backend app is a secured (Picketlink) JAX-RS application which sends out push messages when a new contact has been created. Sometimes the backend (for a mobile application) has to run behind the firewall. For that the quickstart contains a Fabric8 based Proxy server as well.
Thanks again to the Keycloak team for their assistance.
Now, get your hands dirty and send some push messages! We hope you like the new server!
We are now polishing the server for the 1.0.0 push release this summer. See the roadmap for details.
Today we are releasing two libraries around our Push offerings!
- UnifiedPush Server 0.10.4
- Java Sender client 0.7.0
Both releases are containing bug fixes and small improvements. This will be the last release of the 0.10.4 series, the next release (0.11) will contain an all new UI (powered by Angular.js), an integration with Keycloak and other new features such as analytics around push messages.
Both releases are available on Maven Central. The UnifiedPush Server on our OpenShift cartridge was also update to contain 0.10.4 for our PaaS offerings.
Last but not least: This summer we will be release the AeroGear MobilePush 1.0.0 to the community!
Stay tuned for more
The AeroGear UnifiedPush Server 0.10.3 was released to bintray and OpenShift online!
The release contains a few improvements:
- Improved exception handling for Google Cloud Messaging
- Generated Code Snippets match the simplified API of our Apache Cordova Push Plugin (0.5.0)
