Getting started

Or for the on-premise version, execute the following steps to get going!

  • Get the latest WAR files
  • Setup a database of your choice
  • Start the {Wildfly-10|EAP 7} server (e.g. $SERVER_HOME/bin/ -c standalone-full.xml -b
  • Deploy the two WAR files to the server

Now go to http://localhost:8080/ag-push and enjoy the UnifiedPush Server. NOTE: the default user/password is admin:123

Getting Started with Clustered Servers

In order to test on a cluster of WildFly servers, the default configuration serves pretty well, you just need to change startup script a bit - in following scenario we will use servers colocated on one node with configured port-offset:

./bin/ -c standalone-full-ha.xml -Djboss.messaging.cluster.password=somepassword -Djboss.socket.binding.port-offset=100

And in a second terminal:

./bin/ -c standalone-full-ha.xml -Djboss.messaging.cluster.password=somepassword -Djboss.socket.binding.port-offset=200

Note: on OS X, you need to enable multicast first:

# Adds a multicast route for
sudo route add -net


For your convenience, we do have an easy way of launch with our Docker compose file


For more details about the current release, please consult our documentation.

Generate REST Documentation

Up to date generated REST endpoint documentation can be found in jaxrs/target/miredot/index.html. It is generated with every jaxrs module build.

Who is using it?

We have a list of users in our wiki. If you are using the UnifiedPush Server, please add yourself to the list!


The above Getting started section covers the latest release of the UnifiedPush Server. For development and deploying SNAPSHOT versions, you will find information in this section.


For deployment of the master branch to a specific server (Wildfly-10 or EAP7), you need to build the WAR files and deploy them to a running and configured server.

First build the entire project:

mvn clean install

Note, this will build the also the WAR files for both, WildFly-10 and EAP7.

Deployment to WildFly/EAP7

For WildFly, invoke the following commands afer the build has been completed. This will deploy both WAR files to a running and configured Wildfly server.

cd servers
mvn wildfly:deploy -Pwildfly

AdminUI and its release

The sources for administration console UI are placed under admin-ui.

For a build of the admin-ui during release, you can just run a Maven build, the admin-ui will be compiled by frontend-maven-plugin during admin-ui module build.

For instructions how to develop admin-ui, refer to admin-ui/

These instructions contains also specific instructions how to upgrade NPM package dependencies.

Note that the {{frontend-maven-plugin}} may fail if you killed the build during its work - it may leave the downloaded modules in inconsistent state, see admin-ui/

Cleaning the Admin UI build

In order to clean the state of Admin UI build caches, run maven build with the following parameter

mvn clean install -Dfrontend.clean.force

Try this if the build fails e.g. after bower.json or package.json modifications to make sure no cache is playing with you.


For our Openshift Online cartridge we enforce HTTPS. This is done with a specific Maven Profile. To build the WAR files for Openshift the following needs to be invoked:

mvn clean install -Popenshift,test

The WAR file can be used to update our Cartridge.

Releasing the UnifiedPush Server

The content of the Release Process is valid for this project as well. However, to build the distribution bundle, you need to include these profiles:

mvn release:GOAL -Pdist,test

Deprecation Notices


Chrome Packaged Apps

The Chrome Packaged App Variant will be removed. Google has deprecated the chrome.pushMessaging API in favor of the chrome.gcm API.

This change allows the UnifiedPush Server to now use the Android Variant for both Android and Chrome Apps.

If you are using this functionality, please convert your applications to use the new API and recreate your variants.
