In PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, when setting up APNS (Apple) push notifications for the Campus Mobile application, the Notifications Handler class fails (silently, without error output), never generating the expected SCC_APNS_SEND synchronous message. The problem (after adding a throw exception line to said handler) is that it cannot find the Java class com.peoplesoft.hr.sa.scc.notifications.PushMessageHandler on the app server class path. Further investigation shows that the class is called com.peoplesoft.cs.sa.scc.notifications.PushMessageHandler, located in the jar $PS_APP_HOME/appserv/classes/com.peoplesoft.cs.sa.jar. However, the PeopleCode class SCC_COMMON:NOTIFICATION:PUSH:PushConstants is hard-coded to load the "hr" version of the class.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Build Campus Mobile 5.3 as per documentation.
2. Set up Campus Solutions for Apple iOS push notifications as per documentation (requires Apple APNS client certificate for the app that was built).
3. Connect to CS 9.2 Update 7 using mobile app.
4. Trigger push notification using SACR Notification Tester component.
5. The SCC_PUSH_NOTIFICATIONS asynchronous IB message is triggered.
6. The SCC_APNS_SEND synchronous message is not triggered by the handler NOTIFYHNDLR of SCC_PUSH_NOTIFICATIONS.
