I am creating the Android application where C2DM push notification is used. But i have a problem in creating the php code to use c2dm for sending messages. please guide me how to use the php code to send the messages. Actually there is a problem regarding this that how to get client auth token. I have seen the url but according to this i have created the android application and i got the registration id also and i also send to the user but how server uses this to send the application.

is there anything needed for the server from the android device to send the messages?.



To register your own server system and obtain the Authorise Tokens (this is what Cpt. Ohlund proposed):

function googleAuthenticate($username, $password, $source="Company-AppName-Version", $service="ac2dm") {    

        if( isset($_SESSION['google_auth_id']) && $_SESSION['google_auth_id'] != null)
            return $_SESSION['google_auth_id'];

        // get an authorization token
        $ch = curl_init();
            return false;

        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "");
        $post_fields = "accountType=" . urlencode('HOSTED_OR_GOOGLE')
            . "&Email=" . urlencode($username)
            . "&Passwd=" . urlencode($password)
            . "&source=" . urlencode($source)
            . "&service=" . urlencode($service);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $post_fields);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT, true);    
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_ANY);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

        // for debugging the request
        //curl_setopt($ch, CURLINFO_HEADER_OUT, true); // for debugging the request

        $response = curl_exec($ch);

        //var_dump(curl_getinfo($ch)); //for debugging the request


        if (strpos($response, '200 OK') === false) {
            return false;

        // find the auth code
        preg_match("/(Auth=)([w|-]+)/", $response, $matches);

        if (!$matches[2]) {
            return false;

        $_SESSION['google_auth_id'] = $matches[2];
        return $matches[2];

To send a message to a phone:

// $msgType: all messages with same type may be "collapsed": if multiple are sent,
// only the last will be received by phone. 
function sendMessageToPhone($authCode, $deviceRegistrationId, $msgType, $messageText) {

            $headers = array('Authorization: GoogleLogin auth=' . $authCode);
            $data = array(
                'registration_id' => $deviceRegistrationId,
                'collapse_key' => $msgType,
                'data.message' => $messageText //TODO Add more params with just simple data instead           

            $ch = curl_init();

            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "");
            if ($headers)
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true);
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
            curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);

            $response = curl_exec($ch);


            return $response;

I agree with the comment, what you are doing is very underhanded, but after 10 years in this biz I can attest to one thing: Half the code you get is so convoluted it might as well have been minified, and really function/var names are so often completely arbitrary, i've edited minified js and it wasn't much more of a hassle than some unminified code.

I couldn't find any such script/program, most likely because this is kind of against the PHP spirit and a bit underhanded, never the less.

First: Php isn't white space sensitive, so step one is to remove all newlines and whitespace outside of string.

That would make it difficult to mess with for the average tinkerer, an intermediate programmer would just find and replace all ;{} with $1n or something to that effect.

The next step would be to get_defined_functions and save that array (The 'user' key in the returned array), you'll need to include all of the files to do this.

If it's oo code, you'll need get_defined_classes as well. Save that array.

Essentially, you need to get the variables, methods, and class instances, you'll have to instantiate the class and get_object_vars on it, and you can poke around and see that you can get alot of other info, like Constants and class vars etc.

Then you take those lists, loop through them, create a unique name for each thing, and then preg_replace, or str_replace that in all of the files.

Make sure you do this on a test copy, and see what errors you get.

Though, just to be clear, there is a special place in hell reserved for people who obfuscate for obfuscation's sake.

Check out: get_defined_functions get_declared_classes and just follow the links around to see what you can do.

you must use Key for server apps (with IP locking) instead of browser key

Under Windows it seems that files in vendor/bin are actually batch files, invoking the original file (and not php files which phpdbg will understand).

In this case:

dir=$(d=${0%[/\]*}; cd "$d"; cd "../phpunit/phpunit" && pwd)
"${dir}/phpunit" "$@"

i.e. ../phpunit/phpunit/phpunit (this path is relative to vendor/bin); thus the actual file is at vendor/phpunit/phpunit/phpunit.

And you can invoke it directly via phpdbg -qrr vendor/phpunit/phpunit/phpunit then.

C2DM is not suitable for critical parts of your application, since Google currently does not offer an SLA or paid tiers that will guarantee you reliable service and throughput.

I've considered several alternatives myself: XMPP via asmack, Parse, Deacon, Urban Airship, and MQTT.

After some reading and experimenting I decided to go with MQTT. It is a very lightweight telemetry protocol invented at IBM that fits quite nicely in the Android push notifications scenario. I recommend you give it a try, here's a nice blog post to guide you: Using MQTT in Android mobile applications.

Hope this helps.
