Push Notification Bridge persistence plugin

The Push Notification Bridge stores subscription information in memory. To persist this information past the end of the bridge process, implement a persistence plugin.

The persistence API

The Push Notification Bridge persistence API provides the following interfaces for you to use to develop your persistence plugin:
Your implementation of this interface is referenced by the bridge configuration and is called by the bridge to build the Saver object.
Your implementation of this interface is called by the bridge when push notification subscriptions and unsubscriptions are made. It uses this information to update the persisted model of the subscriptions.
Your implementation of this interface is called by the bridge when it starts and is used to update the model of subscriptions held in memory by the bridge.
This provides a context for events passed to the Saver interface. It is used for logging and audit trail purposes.

Full API documentation is available at the following location: Java API documentation.

An example implementation of the persistence API is available on GitHub: https://github.com/pushtechnology/push-notification-persistence-example. This example is basic and uses Java™ serialization to persist the subscription model.
Note: The example persistence plugin is not suitable for production use.

Developing the persistence plugin

A JAR file that contains the persistence API is available on the Push Technology Maven™ repository.

To use Maven to declare the dependency, first add the Push Technology public repository to your pom.xml file:
Next declare the following dependency in your pom.xml file:

Using the persistence plugin

  1. Compile your persistence code.
  2. Ensure that the compiled code is on the classpath of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that runs the bridge.
  3. Configure the bridge to use your persistence plugin.
    Use the saverFactory attribute of the persistence element to specify the name of the SaverFactory class in your plugin. For example:
    <persistence saverFactory="com.example.pnb.SaverFactory"/>

    The content of the persistence element can be text content. This content is passed into the saver factory as arguments.
