    I´m currently creating a custom plugin that uses a AndroidService to play back a radio stream. I need to popup a notification to the user telling him that the radio is playing and when clicked show again the app.

    Notification note = new Notification(ICON, "Listening now...", System.currentTimeMillis());
    Intent i = new Intent(BackgroundAudioService.this, MyActivity.class);

    How could I turn ICON in a resource? In a normal app in Eclipse, I could refer to R (class).
    How could I find out which class is my activity?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Tulio,

    You can use this code from the PushPlugin that shows a notification correctly with the app icon.

    As a side if you need to access the icon drawable you can use the following snippet:

    context.getResources().getIdentifier("icon", "drawable", context.getPackageName());
    where context is the application activity's context that can be retrieve in the plugin like this:
    private Context getApplicationContext() {
        return this.cordova.getActivity().getApplicationContext();

    Hope this helps,
    Stefan Dobrev
