Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows 8


The Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows 8 is released to make development easy for Windows Metro style application that can harness the power of Windows Azure Compute and Storage. The template is based on Windows Push Notification services existing with Windows Phone 7 applications.

Technologies:

  • ASP.NET MVC 3
  • Windows Azure SDK 1.4.1 Refresh
  • Windows Metro style Javascript application project

The process of sending a notification requires few steps:

  1. Request a channel. Utilize the WinRT API to request a Channel Uri from WNS. The Channel Uri will be the unique identifier you use to send notifications to an application instance.
  2. Register the channel with your Windows Azure cloud services. Once you have your channel you can then store your channel and associate it with any application specific data (e.g user profiles and such) until your services decide that it’s time to send a notification to the given channel
  3. Authenticate against WNS. To send notifications to your channel URI you are first required to Authenticate against WNS using OAuth2 to retrieve a token to be used for each subsequent notification that you push to WNS.
  4. Push notification to channel recipient. Once you have your channel, notification payload and WNS access token you can then perform an HttpWebRequest to post your notification to WNS for delivery to your client.
