AppWorks services are server-side applications that typically provide support for AppWorks managed mobile applications (AppWorks apps), forming part of a wider mobile solution. They are deployed by the AppWorks Gateway within its host container (Apache Tomcat 8) along with the aforementioned apps. They are built using the AppWorks Service Development Kit (SDK).
Native push notifications were introduced in version 16 of the AppWorks platform. The AppWorks Gateway can send notifications to registered clients, and the Android and iOS AppWorks mobile clients can receive and process them. This functionality leverages Google Cloud Messaging Services (GCM) to deliver notifications across both platforms seamlessly.
