How to send push notifications to the XAF Mobile application using Azure Notifications Hub

XAF Team Blog
21 July 2017

We've created a KB article that describes how to integrate push notifications into your XAF mobile application:

To help implement our solution, we used both the phonegap-plugin-push and Azure Notification Hub tool. We've opted for the latter because it is an easy-to-use, multi-platform, scaled-out push engine that allows you to make a single cross-platform API call to send targeted and personalized push notifications to any mobile platform (Android/iOS/Windows) from any cloud or on-premises backend. Of course, you can use the native APIs offered by Google/Apple/Microsoft or any other third-party notification services instead.
