  1. Configure the custom messaging service

    To set the custom messaging service as the SDK’s messaging service, complete the following:

    1. Set the messagingService value of the sdk configuration to “custom”
    2. Create a custom messaging service implementation
    3. Add a file to mce/plugins assets folder with the following content:

    { “messagingService”: “<your custom messaging service class name>” } To create a custom messaging service implementation, the customer should implement the SDK’s MessagingService interface.

    Sample code:

    import android.content.Context;
    import com.ibm.mce.sdk.api.MceSdkConfiguration;
    import com.ibm.mce.sdk.api.MessagingService;
    public class CustomMessagingService implements MessagingService {
    public void initialize(Context context, MceSdkConfiguration mceSdkConfiguration)
    { // code that runs on sdk init }@Override
    public boolean register(Context context)
    { // perform any service registration code here. return true if registration is possible or false otherwise return true; }@Override
    public String getServiceName()
    { // define the name of the messaging service return "MyCustomService"; }}
