Creating a push request

Whether you are using the PAP push format or the BlackBerry push format, a push request is made up of the content to be pushed and a set of delivery parameters. These parameters define how, when, and to whom the content is pushed. The main difference between the two formats is how the delivery parameters are specified.

Both the PAP push and BlackBerry push formats support the following features:

  • Reliable push requests: Request that the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service send a result notification to indicate the success or failure of the push request for each recipient address.
  • Deliver-Before time stamp: Provide a time stamp before which the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service must deliver the pushed content. If the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service is unable to deliver the content by the specified time, the push request is considered to have failed.
  • Deliver-After time stamp: Provide a time stamp before which the push must not be delivered. If a push is not successfully delivered after the specified time, the push is considered to have failed.

In addition, the PAP push format supports the following features:

  • Push cancellation: Cancel a push submission that has already been sent.
  • Push status query: Check the status of a push submission.
