Overview of Nokia Notifications

The Nokia Notifications API makes it easy to add real-time push notifications to your MIDlets running on Nokia Asha software platform devices.

Notification is a message that is sent from an application-specific notification service to its own MIDlet (client) installed on the device.

Nokia Notifications API has the following features:

  • Nokia Notifications Client API — Register the MIDlet to receive notifications from the notification service that is coupled with the MIDlet.

  • Nokia Notifications Service API (REST API) — Sends notifications to the MIDlet from the notification service without a direct connection between service and device.

Nokia Notifications API uses push technology and all MIDlets share the same optimised online connection, through Notifications API, to the Notification Server.
