Push Notification Issues with Android

Hi Team,

We’re trying to get Android push notifications working but are running into some difficulties.

It seems like the main issue is that the SDK hasn’t been migrated to androidX? Are you planning on doing this anytime soon?

The issue seems to be in these classes:

import android.support.v4.app.NotificationCompat;
import android.support.v4.app.NotificationManagerCompat;

With androidx it becomes:
import androidx.core.app.NotificationCompat

The documentation is also out of date: Push Notification Setup (Android) - Backendless SDK for Android/Java API Documentation
For example: com.google.firebase:firebase-core is no longer needed as its included the Firebase SDK for Google Analytics

Info on how to migrate: Migrating to AndroidX  |  Android Developers

If migrating is out of the question, would you be able to make method onMessageReceived not final so we can implement our own service?

Thanks in advance.

Hello @Reece_Smith,

We’ve discussed this question with our Android dev.
I can advise you to override the
public boolean onMessage( Context appContext, Intent msgIntent )
method with your logic.
