2190961 - SMP 3.0.7 SDK and lower versions use a deprecated GCM push library


SMP 3.0 SDK SP07 uses a deprecated API to support Android push notifications.

This implementation based on the gcm.jar library is marked deprecated by Google.  See the folllowing Google document:

  • GoogleCloudMessaging API should be used instead.
  • This may impact all Android applications that are using push functionality via the SMP SDK because the GCM service may be shutdown by Google without any notice.



  • SMP 3.0 SP 07 SDK and earlier versions
  • Android all versions
  • Kapsel
  • Cordova 3.x and 4.x
