[aerogear-dev] Sender REST endpoint returns text/plain

Hey guys,

one issues Tadeas identified during testing sender endpoint via Java Sender
lib is connected to this quiet change in the REST response from REST Sender
endpoint (we added text/plain response specification):

https://github.com/aerogear/aerogear-unifiedpush-server/blob/master/jaxrs/src/main/java/org/jboss/aerogear/unifiedpush/rest/sender/PushNotificationSenderEndpoint.java#L107


As we were always responding with "Job submitted", admin-ui client started
to complain about the response not being JSON. So obvious fix was change
that to text/plain, right?

Not really.. some clients like Java Sender lib already expects
application/json and JAX-RS then refuses these requests:

https://github.com/aerogear/aerogear-unifiedpush-java-client/blob/master/src/main/java/org/jboss/aerogear/unifiedpush/http/HttpClient.java#L82



The question is, what should be the correct response?

There are many options, I would be perfectly fine with 204 No Content reply,

but JSON might be more appropriate for future extensions, we may want to
return e.g. PushMessageInformation#id or something else as part of the
response.

So, wouldn't be application/json more appropriate than text/plain? We may
send empty body now {}.


Is this something we want to address for Alpha? Or should we release fixed
Java Sender lib?


Cheers,

~ Lukas
