Applozic One to One and Group Chat SDK

Getting Started

To integrate android chat library into your android app, signup at Applozic to get the application key.

Documentation: Applozic Android Chat & Messaging SDK Documentation

Step 1: Add the following in your build.gradle dependency:

implementation 'com.applozic.communication.uiwidget:mobicomkitui:5.30'

Add the following in gradle android target:

android {

        packagingOptions {           
           exclude 'META-INF/DEPENDENCIES'      
           exclude 'META-INF/NOTICE'         
           exclude 'META-INF/LICENSE'      
           exclude 'META-INF/LICENSE.txt'    
           exclude 'META-INF/NOTICE.txt' 
           exclude 'META-INF/ECLIPSE_.SF'
           exclude 'META-INF/ECLIPSE_.RSA'
         }    
    }               

Step 2: Addition of Permissions,Activities, Services and Receivers in androidmanifest.xml:

Note: Add meta-data, Activities, Services and Receivers within application Tag <application> </application>

Note: Add Permissions outside the application Tag <application>


<meta-data android:name="com.applozic.application.key"
           android:value="YOUR_APPLOZIC_APPLICATION_KEY" /> <!-- Applozic Application Key -->

<meta-data android:name="com.applozic.mobicomkit.notification.smallIcon"
           android:resource="YOUR_LAUNCHER_SMALL_ICON" /> <!-- Launcher white Icon -->
           
<meta-data android:name="main_folder_name"
           android:value="@string/default_media_location_folder" /> <!-- Attachment Folder Name -->
           
<meta-data android:name="com.google.android.geo.API_KEY"
           android:value="YOUR_GEO_API_KEY" />  <!--Replace with your geo api key from google developer console  --> 
<!-- For testing purpose use AIzaSyAYB1vPc4cpn_FJv68eS_ZGe1UasBNwxLI
To disable the location sharing via map add this line ApplozicSetting.getInstance(context).disableLocationSharingViaMap(); in onSuccess of Applozic UserLoginTask -->
           
 <meta-data android:name="activity.open.on.notification"
            android:value="com.applozic.mobicomkit.uiwidgets.conversation.activity.ConversationActivity" /> <!-- NOTE : Do NOT change this value -->    
            
<meta-data android:name="com.package.name" 
           android:value="${applicationId}" /> <!-- NOTE: Do NOT change this, it should remain same i.e 'com.package.name' -->
           
  <provider
            android:name="com.applozic.mobicomkit.uiwidgets.ALFileProvider"
            android:authorities="${applicationId}.provider"
            android:exported="false"
            android:grantUriPermissions="true">
            <meta-data
                android:name="android.support.FILE_PROVIDER_PATHS"
                android:resource="@xml/applozic_provider_paths" />
        </provider>           
         

Note: If you are not using gradle build you need to replace ${applicationId} with your Android app package name

Define Attachment Folder Name in your string.xml.

<string name="default_media_location_folder">YOUR_APP_NAME</string> 

Permissions:

<uses-permission android:name="<APP_PKG_NAME>.permission.MAPS_RECEIVE" />
<permission android:name="<APP_PKG_NAME>.permission.MAPS_RECEIVE" android:protectionLevel="signature" />

          </intent-filter>
</receiver>                 

Replace APP_PARENT_ACTIVITY with your app's parent activity.

Step 3: Register user account:

User user = new User();          
user.setUserId(userId); //userId it can be any unique user identifier
user.setDisplayName(displayName); //displayName is the name of the user which will be shown in chat messages
user.setEmail(email); //optional  
user.setAuthenticationTypeId(User.AuthenticationType.APPLOZIC.getValue());  //User.AuthenticationType.APPLOZIC.getValue() for password verification from Applozic server and User.AuthenticationType.CLIENT.getValue() for access Token verification from your server set access token as password
user.setPassword(""); //optional, leave it blank for testing purpose, read this if you want to add additional security by verifying password from your server https://www.applozic.com/docs/configuration.html#access-token-url
user.setImageLink("");//optional,pass your image link

 Applozic.connectUser(context, user, new AlLoginHandler() {
                @Override
                public void onSuccess(RegistrationResponse registrationResponse, Context context) {
                    // After successful registration with Applozic server the callback will come here 
                }

                @Override
                public void onFailure(RegistrationResponse registrationResponse, Exception exception) {
                    // If any failure in registration the callback  will come here 
             }
   });                                      

If it is a new user, new user account will get created else existing user will be logged in to the application. You can check if user is logged in to applozic or not by using Applozic.isConnected(context)

Step 4: Push Notification Setup

Go to Applozic Dashboard, Edit Application -> Push Notification -> Android -> GCM/FCM Server Key.

Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) is already enabled in my app

Add the below code and pass the FCM registration token:

1. In UserLoginTask "onSuccess" (refer Step 3)

if(MobiComUserPreference.getInstance(context).isRegistered()) {
  Applozic.registerForPushNotification(context, registrationToken, new AlPushNotificationHandler() {
                @Override
                public void onSuccess(RegistrationResponse registrationResponse) {
                   
                }

                @Override
                public void onFailure(RegistrationResponse registrationResponse, Exception exception) {

                }
    });
}

2. In your FcmListenerService onNewToken(Token registrationToken) method

if (MobiComUserPreference.getInstance(this).isRegistered()) {
     new RegisterUserClientService(this).updatePushNotificationId(registrationToken);
}
For Receiving Notifications in FCM

Add the following in your FcmListenerService in onMessageReceived(RemoteMessage remoteMessage)

 if (MobiComPushReceiver.isMobiComPushNotification(remoteMessage.getData())) {
           MobiComPushReceiver.processMessageAsync(this, remoteMessage.getData());
           return;
   }

GCM is already enabled in my app

If you already have GCM enabled in your app, add the below code and pass the GCM registration token:

1. In UserLoginTask "onSuccess" (refer Step 3)

if(MobiComUserPreference.getInstance(context).isRegistered()) {
  Applozic.registerForPushNotification(context, registrationToken, new AlPushNotificationHandler() {
                @Override
                public void onSuccess(RegistrationResponse registrationResponse) {
                   
                }

                @Override
                public void onFailure(RegistrationResponse registrationResponse, Exception exception) {

                }
     });
}

2. At the place where you are getting the GCM registration token in your app.

if (MobiComUserPreference.getInstance(this).isRegistered()) {
     new RegisterUserClientService(this).updatePushNotificationId(registrationToken);
}
For Receiving Notifications In GCM

Add the following in your GcmListenerService in onMessageReceived

if(MobiComPushReceiver.isMobiComPushNotification(data)) {            
        MobiComPushReceiver.processMessageAsync(this, data);               
        return;          
}                                          

Don't have Android Push Notification code ?

To Enable Android Push Notification using Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) visit the Firebase console and create new project, add the google service json to your app, configure the build.gradle files in your app ,finally get server key from project settings and update inApplozic Dashboard under Edit Application -> Push Notification -> Android -> GCM/FCM Server Key.

In case, if you don't have the existing FCM related code, then copy the push notification related files from Applozic sample app to your project from the below github link

Github push notification code link

And add below code in your androidmanifest.xml file

<service android:name="<CLASS_PACKAGE>.FcmListenerService"
android:stopWithTask="false">
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="com.google.firebase.MESSAGING_EVENT" />
        </intent-filter>
</service>

Setup PushNotificationTask in UserLoginTask "onSuccess" (refer Step 3).

Applozic.registerForPushNotification(context, Applozic.getInstance(context).getDeviceRegistrationId(), new   AlPushNotificationHandler() {
                @Override
                public void onSuccess(RegistrationResponse registrationResponse) {
                   
                }

                @Override
                public void onFailure(RegistrationResponse registrationResponse, Exception exception) {

                }
    });

Step 5: For starting the messaging activity:

Intent intent = new Intent(this, ConversationActivity.class);            
startActivity(intent);                               

For starting individual conversation thread, set "userId" in intent:

Intent intent = new Intent(this, ConversationActivity.class);            
intent.putExtra(ConversationUIService.USER_ID, "receiveruserid123");             
intent.putExtra(ConversationUIService.DISPLAY_NAME, "Receiver display name"); //put it for displaying the title.  
intent.putExtra(ConversationUIService.TAKE_ORDER,true); //Skip chat list for showing on back press 
startActivity(intent);

Step 6: On logout, call the following:

Applozic.logoutUser(context, new AlLogoutHandler() {
                @Override
                public void onSuccess(Context context) {
                    
                }

                @Override
                public void onFailure(Exception exception) {

                }
        });     

Note: If you are running ProGuard, please add following lines:

 #keep json classes                
 -keepclassmembernames class * extends com.applozic.mobicommons.json.JsonMarker {
  !static !transient <fields>;
 }

 -keepclassmembernames class * extends com.applozic.mobicommons.json.JsonParcelableMarker {
  !static !transient <fields>;
 }
 #GSON Config          
-keepattributes Signature          
-keep class sun.misc.Unsafe { *; }           
-keep class com.google.gson.examples.android.model.** { *; }            
-keep class org.eclipse.paho.client.mqttv3.logging.JSR47Logger { *; } 
-keep class android.support.** { *; }
-keep interface android.support.** { *; }
-dontwarn android.support.v4.**
-keep public class com.google.android.gms.* { public *; }
-dontwarn com.google.android.gms.**
-keep class com.google.gson.** { *; }

Trying out the demo app:

Open project in Android Studio to run the sample app in your device. Send messages between multiple devices.

Display name for users: You can either choose to handle display name from your app or have Applozic handle it. From your app's first activity, set the following to disable display name feature: ApplozicClient.getInstance(this).setHandleDisplayName(false); By default, the display name feature is enabled.
