Being listed as a Mobile Service on xPaaS, the JBoss Unified Push Server allows developers to send native push messages to Apple’s Push Notification Service (APNS) and Google’s Cloud Messaging (GCM). It features a built-in administration console that makes it easy for developers to create and manage the push related aspects of their applications for any mobile development environment. Includes client SDKs (iOS, Android, & Cordova), and a REST based sender service with available Node.js and Java sender libraries.
To get started using the JBoss Unified Push Server there are a series of quickstarts, from the basics, to business logic integration. Each quickstart comes with multiple client options (Android, iOS, and Apache Cordova (jQuery Mobile & Angular/Ionic)).
Deploying the Unified Push Server on Openshift is simple, just follow the instructions in this document.
In the AeroGear community we are working hard to improve feature set of our Unified Push Server. The upstream project is plans to add support for more Push-Network services, like Microsoft Push Notification Service (MPNS), Windows Push Notification Services (WNS), SimplePush for Firefox OS, APNs for Safari Browser and GCM for Chrome Apps
