I'm trying to get the push notification sample (module 21) to work with iOS.
The steps I've taken so far:
1. Downloaded sample -> imported -> removed Android env
2. Added iPhone env. Updated application.desc.xml accordingly. Using "PersistentCookie" realm instead of "PushAppRealm" (in app-desc.xml and PushAdapter.xml)
3. Acquired apns certificate, and renamed it to apns-certificate-sandbox.p12.
4. Deploy project onto iPhone.
When I click "isSubscribed" button. I get false. And the buttons below are disabled.
Is there something I've missed? Or have I misconfigured something?
Note. This is stack trace I get if I try to "Invoke Worklight Procedure" on the PushAdapter
2012-05-30 18:28:51 Starting procedure invocation on Worklight Server
2012-05-30 18:28:52 Deploying adapter: PushAdapter

Re: Push Notification sample for iOS2012-05-31T10:31:35Z in response to SystemAdminFrom the sample app, have you also copied authenticationConfig.xml to your server's conf folder?
The supplied .xml file contains the PersistentCookie realm, so if you say it doesn't find it - it sounds like it is missing.
Re: Push Notification sample for iOS2012-05-31T17:52:50Z in response to SystemAdminMany thanks for the timely response.
To answer your question, the realm does exist in the authConf.xml I have checked the conf everytime I get the message because it is driving me insane :( :o .
Just to be on the safe side I downloaded the project again, imported it and tried to use the PersistentCookie realm once again.
I've attached an image displaying my current server structure and where the conf lies.
I have also attached this simple project.
When I deploy the app on the iPhone it does not enable the subscribe button. (Or any of the buttons that rely on WL.Client.Push.onReadyToSubscribe)
Just for testing purpose I removed \$('SubscribeButton').disable(); from wlCommonInit(); to see what happens, I get the following message:
PushApplication3911:707 ERROR Can't subscribe, notification token is not updated on the server.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Re: Push Notification sample for iOS2012-05-31T20:30:42Z in response to SystemAdminI don't understand, why are you changing the contents of application-descriptor.xml? You should be able to run the sample as-is, except for the additions of the certificate, the iPhone environment (and its relevant settings in application-descriptor) as well as adding the authenticationConfig.xml file to your server. That's it.
What are your Worklight Server and Studio versions?
Re: Push Notification sample for iOS2012-05-31T21:13:27Z in response to SystemAdminBecause I was running out ideas :). Thought I could give different realms a try.
Server Version: 220.127.116.113
Studio Version: 18.104.22.1689
Also by "iPhone environment (and its relevant settings in application-descriptor)" do you mean just adding the pushSender element or is there more to do?
Could it possibly be an issue with my certificate even tho it deploys successfully on the iPhone?
Thanks again for the quick response :)
Re: Push Notification sample for iOS2012-06-01T04:43:24Z in response to SystemAdminFirst of all, you should use the same version of the server and plug-in.
After you do the above:
1. Import the sample project to Eclipse
2. From the conf folder in the project, copy authenticationConfig.xml and replace yours with the one you copied. It should sit in <your-server-installation>/serve/conf/
3. Add the iPhone environment.
3.1 Add the PushSender password
3.2 Add the push-enabled certificate to the project
4. Build and deploy
5. Open Xcode project in Xcode
6. Choose the right developer signer
7. Run on device
I can't help you with steps 3.2 and 6, as it is on you to create the right certificates for this.
Also, try to look at other iOS/Push related threads here in the forum. They may had the same problem you're facing.
Re: Push Notification sample for iOS2012-06-01T13:00:35Z in response to SystemAdminThank you very much again.
I've tried everything in the books to get this work. I've sent a response to another thread (Link) that had a similar issue. I want to know how he/she got around the issue.
