To register media with Mobile Core, call the setApplication() method in onCreate() and call set up methods, as shown in this sample:

import com.adobe.marketing.mobile.*;
public class MobileApp extends Application {
@Override
public void onCreate() {
super.onCreate();
MobileCore.setApplication(this);
try {
Media.registerExtension();
Analytics.registerExtension();
Identity.registerExtension();
MobileCore.start(new AdobeCallback () {
@Override
public void call(Object o) {
MobileCore.configureWithAppID("your-launch-app-id");
}
});
} catch (InvalidInitException e) {
}
}
}
iOS

In your app's application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions, register Media with Mobile Core:

Objective-C

#import "ACPCore.h"
#import "ACPAnalytics.h"
#import "ACPIdentity.h"
#import "ACPMedia.h"
- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
[ACPCore setLogLevel:ACPMobileLogLevelDebug];
[ACPCore configureWithAppId:@"your-launch-app-id"];
[ACPAnalytics registerExtension];
[ACPIdentity registerExtension];
[ACPMedia registerExtension];
[ACPCore start:^{
}];
return YES;
}

Swift

import ACPCore
import ACPAnalytics
import ACPIdentity
import ACPMedia
func application(_ application: UIApplication,
didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
ACPCore.setLogLevel(.debug)
ACPCore.configure(withAppId: "your-launch-app-id")
ACPAnalytics.registerExtension()
ACPIdentity.registerExtension()
ACPMedia.registerExtension()
ACPCore.start {
}
return true;
}
