Building Notification Solutions

Notification Services provides a framework for developing notification solutions. To develop Notification Services applications, you define the application properties, and then you configure an instance to host the application.

Your application can use standard components, or you can develop custom components for collecting events, formatting notifications, and distributing notifications.

As part of developing an application, you must also develop a subscription management interface so subscribers can create subscriptions.
