Constraints on MobileFirst Server push service

Find out the constraints of deploying push service application.

The push service can be on the same application server as the administration service or the runtime, or can be on a different application server. The URL used by the client apps to contact the push service is the same as the URL used by the client apps to contact the runtime, excepted that the context root of the runtime is replaced by imfpush. If you install the push service on a different server than the runtime, your HTTP server must direct the traffic to the /imfpush context root to a server where the push service runs.

For more information about the JNDI properties that are needed to adapt the installation to a topology, see MobileFirst Server administration service to MobileFirst Server push service, and to the authorization server. The push service must be installed with the context root /imfpush.
