MyPushListener service

This service is recalled by the ‘co.ronash.pushe.Receive’ action, which means, as soon as it receives the message, the Pushe package will be executed. First, this method with two JSON input parameters will check the length of the JSON input parameter not to be zero and then put the type of the message in an intent. If the ‘intent’ equals to “telegram” string, it will open a page on the Telegram application; if its value equals to “Bazar” string, then it will open the name of the desired application package on Café Bazaar; and if the value equals to “link” string, then it opens the specified link inside the phone browser.

public void onMessageReceived(JSONObject paramJSONObject1, JSONObject paramJSONObject2) {

    if (paramJSONObject1.length() != 0) {

      Intent intent;

      final String link;

      Log.d(“Pushe”, “Jsoni Ke Ferestadi Khalie”);

      try {

        intent = paramJSONObject1.getString(“type”);

        if (intent.equals(“telegram”)) {

          str = paramJSONObject1.getString(“link”);

          (new Handler(getMainLooper())).post(new Runnable() {

                public void run() {

                  Intent intent = new Intent(“android.intent.action.VIEW”, Uri.parse(link));

                  intent.addFlags(268435456);

                  MyPushListener.this.startActivity(intent);

                }

              });

          return;

        }

      } catch (JSONException paramJSONObject1) {

        Log.e(“”, “Exception in parsing json”, paramJSONObject1);

        return;

      }

      if (intent.equals(“bazar”)) {

        str = paramJSONObject1.getString(“packagename”);

        intent = new Intent(“android.intent.action.VIEW”);

        intent.setData(Uri.parse(“bazaar://details?id=” + str));

        intent.setPackage(“com.farsitel.bazaar”);

        intent.addFlags(268435456);

        startActivity(intent);

        return;

      }

      if (intent.equals(“link”)) {

        Intent intent1 = new Intent(“android.intent.action.VIEW”, Uri.parse(str.getString(“link”)));

        intent1.addFlags(268435456);

        startActivity(intent1);

        return;

      }

    }

  }
