Push Notification Sample Application

Notifications can be provided to clients by either a push or pull subscription. This sample application shows how to provide push notifications to a client application. The Exchange Client Access server sends notifications to the Web service listener routine of the client application.

The push notification sample is included in the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP2 Web Services Software Development Kit (SDK).

The push notification sample application contains two components. The first component is the client Web service that listens for and retrieves notification events. This component also provides responses to notify the Client Access server as to whether the subscription should be maintained. The second component initiates the subscription with the Client Access server. It identifies the client Web service endpoint and other information that is required to configure the subscription.


This sample application is intended for instructional purposes and is not meant to be installed in a production environment.
